※ Based on the data released by the Japan Meteorological Agency. Both high and low temperature data are averages over the past 30 years.
After late March, the temperature in Tokyo will rise significantly. In April, there are days when the maximum temperature exceeds 25 degrees. It’s warm, so you will no longer see people wearing a coat in the city.
However, there are days when it gets cold at night. Therefore, if you go to see cherry blossoms at night, take a spring coat or a jumper.
As it may rain in April, please carry an umbrella.
Sometimes it feels hot in late April. In town, people who warm easily will begin to wear short sleeve clothes. Every time it rains, the leaves of the trees grow and become a more beautiful and fresh green.
