Every year in May, the vacation season called Golden Week in Japan continues until around the 5th. During Golden Week, Okinawa is also crowded with a large number of domestic tourists. From around May 10th, Okinawa enters the rainy season called “Tsuyu” for about a month. During the rainy season, Okinawa is very hot and humid. However, since it is not the tourist season during the rainy season, you may be able to enjoy a trip at a relatively reasonable price.

Frequently Asked Questions

From when until when is Tsuyu (rainy season) in Okinawa?

According to the Japan Meteorological Agency, the rainy season in Okinawa usually lasts from around May 10th to around June 21st. However, as early as the beginning of May, the rainy season may begin. In some cases, it may continue until the beginning of July.

What should I wear in Okinawa in June?

In June, summer clothes with short sleeves are basically fine in Okinawa. However, it is advisable to bring a lightweight long-sleeved shirt since air conditioning is in effect in hotels and other places. Even in the rainy season, the sun is strong when it is sunny, so it may be a good idea to bring UV-protection cream and sunglasses. For summer clothes, please refer to the following article.
