Tokyo Weather in May


Compared to April, May’s temperatures are clearly higher, and for the most part, you will not feel cold. It will be warm, and if the sun is out, you may feel hot. Having said that, be wary of the temperature shifts in the morning and evening. We recommend wearing a light coat in addition to a short-sleeved garment.

Recommended May Fashion for Ladies: A Light Outer Garment and Short Sleeves


While you can change into short sleeves in May, you should avoid clothing that is too thin. Thick denim and the like should be perfect.


We also suggest that you have a light coat that is easy to put on and easy to take off.


When the weather is windy, wrap a scarf around your neck to keep warm and look good doing it.


There will be more and more warm, sunny days in May, and even if the wind keeps you from feeling too hot, the ultraviolet rays are quite powerful, so be sure to prepare sunscreen lotion and other anti-UV protect your skin.


If you carry an umbrella, you can use it as a sunshade as well, and not have to worry about sudden spring showers or the sun’s rays.
