Rainy season lifts

Weather conditions from June’s rainy season linger in the early part of July. Expect some overcast weather until the rainy season finally lifts around the second week of July.

As the days become sunnier, they also become warmer, with average high temperatures in July around 29C (84F) in Tokyo. It tends to get slightly warmer and more humid in the Kansai region, where highs average around 31C (88F). Temperatures can often climb higher, between 30C (86F) and 35C (95F), towards late July.

Heat and Humidity

While average highs of 30C (86C) may not sound very warm, summer weather conditions in Japan are quite humid, making it feel warmer and heavier here than in many northern American and European cities with similar temperatures, but drier climates.

The heat and humidity can combine to make for some sweaty conditions in most areas including Tokyo, Kyoto, and Osaka, so be sure to pack cool clothing, sunscreen, a hat, and drink plenty of water! The air-conditioning is gentler in most public buildings in Japan compared to in the US (you can adjust it in your room at most hotels), but it’s more than sufficient to cool you down between your outdoor activities.

Japanese people are serious when it comes to protecting themselves from the heat and UV rays! You’ll see Japanese men in suits using handkerchiefs during their morning work commutes and women carrying stylish parasols on the city streets.

Hokkaido and Okinawa

Unlike most of Japan, weather conditions are less humid and cooler in Hokkaido during July, where 75% of days are sunny and high temperatures are 25C (77F) on average. Hokkaido is a popular summer holiday destination among Japanese travellers who enjoy nature and the outdoors.

July can also be a nice time to take a beach holiday in Okinawa, where an average 80% of days are sunny and the highs are around 31C (88F). (Source: Japan Meteorological Society)

Summary

The rainy season lifts around the second week of July and gives way to sunny, hot and humid weather in most regions of Japan. While the intensity of the heat and humidity varies each year, it’s best to pack cool clothing, sunscreen, and a hat to protect yourself from the strong sun!
