In summer, the maximum temperature in Osaka exceeds 35 degrees. It is also damp. For this reason it is dangerous to walk outdoors for a long time. There are days when it is dangerous to exercise outside. I would like you to come to Japan but I can not help being honest that Japan's summer is very hot. I used to live in Osaka before. From that experience, I think that Osaka is a bit hotter than Tokyo. This has been proved by weather data as well. The city area in Osaka, except Osaka Castle Park etc., is less green and the asphalt road is getting hot with strong sunlight.

Hokkaido Weather in July! Temperature and precipitation

On this page, I will explain about the weather in Hokkaido in July. July is definitely the best season of sightseeing. Every year at this time many tourists from Japan and abroad come to Hokkaido. In Hokkaido, it is rare that it will get hot like Tokyo or Osaka. The cool down of the morning and evening will be relieved, so you should be able to enjoy a truly comfortable trip. ContentsWeather in Hokkaido in July(overview)Hokkaido weather in early July (2018)Hokkaido weather in the middle of July (2018)Hokkaido weather in late July (2018) Weather in Hokkaido in July(overview) In July, even in Hokkaido the daytime reference temperature increases every year over 25 degrees day. In late July, the maximum temperature will be over 30 degrees. Sunlight is strong. For this reason, tourists who came for the first time in Hokkaido often feel that Hokkaido is unexpectedly hot. However, in Hokkaido the maximum temperature rarely exceeds 35 degrees. Humidity is low. At this time, for example in Tokyo and Kyoto, many people feel uncomfortable because the highest temperature exceeds 35 degrees and the humidity is high like every day. On the other hand, in Hokkaido, the sun is strong, but it is not steaming and it is quite easy to spend. I think that it is the morning and the night that tourists feel the coolness of summer in Hokkaido. In Hokkaido, the temperature in the morning and evening is low throughout the year. Morning and evening is often less than 15 degrees even in July, ...

Please be aware of the outdoor heat and indoor cold

In Japan the first half of July is relatively rainy. The rainy season from June is still ongoing. But in late July the weather will improve and during the day you will get strong sunshine. The maximum temperature during the day exceeds 30 degrees every day, and it does not become less than 25 degrees even at night. On the other hand, air conditioning is effective in the building, and there are places where it feels very cold. For this reason, some people lose physical condition due to temperature difference. If you are not good at cold I recommend that you bring cardigans and other items so that you will not lose physical condition.

During the day, please drink water little by little to prevent heat stroke outdoors. Even if you want to see a lot of sightseeing spots, please be careful not to walk too much.

I can not believe it will open the Olympic Games in Tokyo this time. I am worried that in 2020, tourists from overseas will not fall down due to heat stroke.

 

Please beware of typhoon attack

From July to September, typhoons will attack many times every year in Japan. When a typhoon comes, trains stop in that area, and planes do not fly. The stations and airports are filled with people who are at a loss. The hotel often gets reservations full.

So I would like to ask you. Please do listen to the weather forecast well before you go to Japan. Even after you came to Japan, please try to get the latest weather forecast as much as possible.

If you are going to be hit by a typhoon while you are staying in Japan, please make sure that the planes and trains you reserved will move as planned. If you are afraid that your plane or train will not move, I recommend that you change the itinerary so as not to forcibly move.

 

Hokkaido and highlands of Honshu are recommended

Between July and August, the climate of Japan is just hot, so many Japanese go out for vacation in Hokkaido and Honshu highlands. In these areas, it is relatively cool and easy to spend. Beautiful flowers bloom and there are many scenic areas, so I recommend you go to such a cool area.

Hokkaido and Karuizawa in Nagano Prefecture etc are popular among many tourists. So, if you decide to go to Japan, please make an airline, train or hotel reservation as soon as possible.

If you go to a particularly popular sightseeing spot, the area usually has traffic congestion on a daily basis. For this reason, I recommend that you use trains to avoid using cars as much as possible.

In Karuizawa, where many tourists visit from Tokyo, it may take more than one hour even by simply moving a section of one train station by car. If you really want to use the car, you'd better depart as early as possible in the morning.

 

I appreciate you reading to the end.
