June is the transition month from spring to summer and the weather is generally unstable. Usually, the rainy season, called “Tsuyu,” begins around mid-June and lasts for about a month. Heavy rainfall is rare along the Seto Inland Sea coast, including Hiroshima City and Miyajima Island, but umbrellas are a must.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is June the best season for sightseeing in Hiroshima and Miyajima?

No. June is not the best season for sightseeing as it is hot and humid and rainy days increase compared to April and May. However, hotel rates are lower.

What should I wear in June in Hiroshima City and on Miyajima Island?

June is not yet the full-blown summer season, so you should prepare both spring and summer clothes. Short-sleeved shirts are fine on sunny days, but since it is cooler inside buildings and in the mornings and evenings, a cardigan or light jacket is recommended. For spring and summer clothes, please refer to the following articles.
