Average of Tokyo and highest temperature in Tokyo

By Holiday Weather.com, average of Tokyo in summer season is 28-29 degree. August is the most hottest season and sometime over 34 degree on daytime.

Tokyo rather locates northern part of Japan, however you will experience sweltering night.

But night time, temperature only under 25 degree, so you have to bring summer cardigan not to catch a cold.

Generally speaking, inside of building is too cold to stay because of strong air conditioner.
