※ Based on the data released by the Japan Meteorological Agency. Both high and low temperature data are averages over the past 30 years (1981-2010)

As you can see from the above graph, even in Hokkaido, the daytime maximum temperature exceeds 25 degrees Celsius in July.

Overview

Even in Hokkaido, July daytime temperatures rise to over 25 degrees every year. In late July, the maximum temperature will reach over 30 degrees with strong sunlight.

For this reason, tourists who go to Hokkaido for the first time often feel that Hokkaido is unexpectedly hot.

However, in Hokkaido the maximum temperature rarely exceeds 35 degrees and humidity is low.

For example, during this time in Tokyo and Kyoto, many people feel uncomfortable because the daily temperature often exceeds 35 degrees with a high level of humidity.

On the other hand, in Hokkaido, the sun is strong but it is not humid. This makes it quite easy to spend your time here. I think that it is in the morning and the night that tourists feel the coolness of summer in Hokkaido. In Hokkaido, the temperature in the morning and evening is low throughout the year. Mornings and evenings are often less than 15 degrees even in July. It feels very cold when wearing a short-sleeved shirt.

If you travel in July, I recommend walking in the morning. You may be able to enjoy a very refreshing atmosphere.

Many areas of Japan will experience a rainy season every year until the middle of July. However, there is not a significant rainy season in Hokkaido. In this wonderful time, I would like you to enjoy Hokkaido as much as you desire.

Below, I will provide weather data announced by the Japan Meteorological Agency.
