Japan in June

Summer in Japan lasts from June to August, even into September depending on location. The season is hot and humid, with temperatures ranging from 20 to 30 °C (70 to 90 °F) depending on location. July and August are usually the hottest months. For those averse to heat the mountains Chugoku, and Shikoku provide shelter from seasonal winds, bringing mild weather. Another cooler area is in the Japanese Alps, Tohoku (northeast Honshu), and Hokkaido island. Some of Japan’s most colorful matusri (festivals) occur over the summer such as Kyoto’s Gion Matsuri, Osaka’s Tenjin Matsuri, and the Awa Odori festival in Tokushima, on the island of Shikoku. It is also a season of Hanabi  (fireworks), the nation taking its hanabi taikai displays seriously indeed. The season is also an ideal one for hikers; those looking for a chance to climb the iconic Mount Fuji can start planning hikes from July 1, when the mountainside opens up for climbers, though July through late August has the best climbing conditions.
