Weather details in may

In general, the month of May is characterized by humidity and a pleasant atmosphere due to a gentle heat throughout the day. However, the climate throughout May in Japan varies from one island to another.

Northern Japan in May

The mildness of the atmosphere and the presence of showers characterizes the climate in Sapporo at this time of year. The chances of having good sunny weather is equal to that of having rainy days.

The Center of Japan in May

With a pleasant heat, Tokyo and Kyoto are favored by mild weather conditions, despite the presence of showers; while in Sendai (Honshu), the mornings are very cool. One must therefore arrange for warm clothes if Sendai is on the itinerary.

Southwestern Japan in May

The climatic conditions of Naha and on the island of Okinawa in general provide heat and the abundant rains that are not favorable for the weather in Japan throughout May. Expect intense rainy days during the most part of the month.
