The temperature will gradually rise in Hokkaido during the month of June. At the end of June, you will begin to feel the early summer atmosphere.

Overview

In June, many areas of Japan are entering the rainy season. There are many rainy days in Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto and more. On rainy days, there are few people visiting temples and shrines so you can explore in a quiet atmosphere. It is also true that you cannot avoid the heat and humidity.

However, Hokkaido is not humid, making it an ideal environment during this time. There are many days that have a maximum temperature that exceeds 25 degrees Celsius but the humidity is relatively low. Therefore, it is more comfortable than other areas of Japan during this time.

Although it will rain, there is not a long rainy season like Tokyo or Osaka. In sightseeing spots such as Biei town and Furano, you will be able to see beautiful flower gardens.

However, even at this time of year, in Hokkaido, the mornings and evenings are quite chilly. Below is the meteorological data of June for Hokkaido announced by the Japan Meteorological Agency. As you can see, it is not unusual to cool down to less than 10 degrees in the morning and evening. Because the temperature difference between day and night can be extreme, I recommend that you bring warmer clothes such as cardigans.
