Weather - The city of Tokyo's climate is
in large part influenced by the mountains and sea.
The climate is sort of like the coastal regions in
the Southeastern United States. So things will change
from season to season and you need to be aware of
that when planning your trip.
Summers are hot and humid. Some
feel they are downright uncomfortable so if you travel
during this time, be sure to bring lots of loose fitting
clothing, preferably of cotton material. Also during
June and into July the baiu, or rainy season takes
hold. It is a month long rainy time in Tokyo. So bring
your umbrella and raincoat. The average temperature
in July is 76.5 degrees F, but the humidity is high
so keep that in mind.
During the Winters the weather is
cool, though the sky is clear and sunny with little
or no snow. The average temperature in January is
38.5 degrees F. If you travel during this time you
will need winter clothing and heavy outer wear, gloves,
scarves and hats.
During the Fall there can be typhoons
with rains that bring flooding to the area. You may
wish to bring your umbrella during this time once
Spring is the most comfortable of
all the seasons. You may wish to travel to the area
during this time so that you can see as much of the
area as possible. Bring comfortable shoes so you can
do a lot of sight seeing in the area. For up to the
