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.
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, and it feels very cold on short sleeve shirts.
If you travel in July, I recommend walking in the morning. Perhaps you should be able to enjoy a very refreshing atmosphere.
Many areas in Japan are in the rainy season every year until the middle of July. However, there is no big rainy season in Hokkaido. In this wonderful time, I would like you to enjoy Hokkaido as much as you want.
