    Is July a good time to visit Tokyo?
    Yes, it is! If you're a fan of Japanese festivals, July is a perfect month to visit Tokyo. From Tanabata Matsuri celebrations at the start of the month, to the breathtaking Sumidagawa River Fireworks Festival in late July, there are great memories to be made throughout the month.

    What is the weather like in Tokyo in July?

    The average temperature in Tokyo in July is 25.7ºC (78.3°F), and it rarely drops below 20ºC (68°F). You will likely experience some rainy days, especially in early and mid-July. Make sure to bring breathable clothes that you can feel comfortable in.
