For those of you planning to someday come to Japan, mid-September is the time to go. The weather is fantastic, it’s hot during the day, but it’s perfect during the evening and early mornings. This makes it perfect weather for just about any vacationing in Japan. Just go somewhere with air conditioning for lunch, and you’ll be set. The gardens are still gorgeous, you still have the full summer foliage, without the full summer heat. It’s not nearly as rainy as may or June, and when it does rain in September it’s only for quick spurts, or during the night.
Japan is perfect right now.
