Japan Weather - Tokyo, Kyoto, Hiroshima, Takayama


Here is a page with a nice collection of weather statistics on a monthly basis.


The Weatherbase site has some nicely presented info:

  • List of Japanese cities, each a link to the weather in each city

  • Selecting one of our cities leads you to a page of monthly average statistics (low temperature, average temperature, high temperature, precipitation, length of day[light])

  • From each city page there are arrows pointing to the left and right; the arrows are part of a ring or cycle that goes through five distinct pages


As we get closer to departure, you might want to use the weekly forecasts from the Japan Meteorological Agency.


As a general summary, one would expect mild temperatures, but on the cool side (upper 50's for lows, mid 60's for highs in Tokyo and Hiroshima, mid 50's to mid 60's in Kyoto, and mid-to-upper 30's to around 60 in Takayama).

And of course, there's always a chance for rain, so a collapsible umbrella and / or a jacket with a hood are likely to come in handy.
