There’s no way around it: August is hot and humid (sweaty!) in Japan. The sun can feel very strong. This doesn’t stop Japanese people, including families with children who are on summer break, from enjoying fun summer activities like swimming, trips to the beach, and attending local festivals called matsuri, and spectacular fireworks shows.

High temperatures in popular cities

To give you an idea of the temperatures in August in popular Japanese cities, the average high temperature is 31C (88F) in Tokyo, 33C (91F) in Osaka, and 32C (90F) in Fukuoka. As with June and July, conditions are relatively cooler in Hokkaido, where average highs are 26C (79F).

The temperatures vary each summer, but it’s not unusual for highs to climb to 35C (95C) or more during the hottest days of the month. The humid conditions can also make the temperatures feel warmer and sweatier in Japan compared to other countries with similar temperatures, but with drier climates.

Summary

The sun tends to be very strong in August, with both high temperatures and high humidity. It’s a good idea to pack light clothing that can you layer (having a long-sleeved shirt or light cardigan that you can carry in your bag can be useful for indoor air-conditioning). Have sun protection (a hat and sunscreen) on hand, make sure to cool off indoors between outdoor activities, and drink plenty of water!
