September is the transition month from summer to autumn. In Kyoto Prefecture, the weather becomes unstable and rainy days increase. The days are still hot until the first half of September. However, from around the 20th, the weather gradually stabilizes and the number of days with calm blue skies increases.

It is typhoons that we must be careful of. The number of typhoons that hit Japan increases the most in September. This means that Kyoto may also be hit by heavy rains and windbreaks, and bullet trains may stop running. Check the weather forecast when traveling to Kyoto.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is September a good time to visit Kyoto?

The best time to visit Kyoto is April-May in the spring and October-November in the fall; September is honestly not the best time to visit because it is still too hot and the weather is unstable. However, the number of tourists is relatively small compared to spring and fall, so you can enjoy a smooth tour of the city. Especially after the end of September, it may be a good time to visit because there are fewer hot days and the weather becomes more stable. However, be sure to check typhoon information.
