① General information on the temperature of Japan in May

It is true that May is an ideal season  to come to Japan!

Usually, temperature in Japan is not too hot, and not too cold during May. The maximum temperature is between 20℃ and 27℃, and the minimum is between 12℃ and 17℃ in most cities. (Of course, there are some exceptions).

However, be aware of the difference of the highest and the lowest temperature. Even though you feel it is hot afternoon, in the evening it gets a bit cold. Actually, in the month, the difference is approximately 10℃.

② Temperature in popular tourist destinations (Tokyo, Kyoto, Hokkaido, Okinawa)

 

* Tokyo

It’s pretty a good idea to look around the city in May. May is the season when people in Japan enjoy going out and doing some outdoor activities, because of the mild temperature. As you can see from the table above, you may feel hot a little bit during daytime. Here, temperature difference is about 10℃ between the highest the lowest, thus you need to be careful not to catch a cold.

 

* Osaka

Osaka also has mild temperature during May and it’s nice to visit Osaka in May. However, average temperature is higher than that in other cities. You may feel it’s like summer, with the temperature and a lot of people in a small area. If you really hate going out in blistering temperatures, you need to be well prepared for it.

 

* Hokkaido

The situation in Hokkaido is slightly different from other cities in terms of temperature, because May is the month when spring comes to the area. It’s much cooler than any other areas, and the average highest temperature is lower than that of the others. In addition, if you plan to participate in a sightseeing tour which starts early in the morning, you have to be careful. It’s because the temperature at the time may be less than 10℃. Here, you must be prepared for the cold. Be prepared and have no regrets!

 

* Okinawa

Contrary to the situation in Hokkaido, if you would like to have a trip in Okinawa in May, you have to know that Okinawa is usually hot during May. The prefecture is hotter than any other areas in Japan, and the highest average temperature is almost 30℃! The temperature is more than 20℃ even in the morning. Thus, May is a kind of summer in Okinawa.
