If you go to Tokyo in May, I think the climate is very comfortable. It is a perfect climate for visiting sightseeing spots, so please visit here and there. However, the weather will become unstable a bit in late May. On this page, I will explain the weather of Tokyo in May, quoting the weather data released by the Japan Weather Association.
Weather in Tokyo in May (overview)
I think that you can spend very comfortably in Tokyo in early May and mid-May. The temperature is warm as the following weather data shows.
When exercising, sweat may come out. However, it is not as hot as the summer yet. You may be OK for short-sleeved shirts during the day.
There are many sunny days, but it may rain. Sometimes it rains continuously for several days.
Rainy days will gradually increase at the end of May. Temperatures will also rise and there will be days when you feel hot and humid. In this way Japan will have rainy season in June, then full-fledged summer will come.
