The Kanto Region’s Weather in June
It is nice and warm in June but you may feel it is a bit hot out under the sun. However, what you should really be careful of is the difference in temperature between morning and evening, and especially how cold it can actually be during a rainy day. We recommend a light jacket worn over a short-sleeved shirt.
Fashion Ideas for Women in June: Light Jacket and Short-Sleeved Shirt
Since it is common for days to be humid and somewhat hot, a short-sleeved shirt and long, light skirt are a perfect match for June.
Instead of wearing jeans, which tend to make you feel a bit suffocated, a long, light skirt or dress will not only make you feel cooler but will also let you move around more easily.
Combining that with a cotton jacket or sweatshirt will let you escape the afternoon sun as well as help you combat the drops in temperature during the morning and evening.
Fashion for Men in June: Light Coat or Shirt over a Short-Sleeved Shirt
For men’s fashion, simply match a cotton T-shirt with the pants or jeans of your choice.
Everyone knows it’s no fun catching a cold while on vacation so we recommend bringing along a light, long-sleeved shirt or jacket.
And when you feel hot, you could stylishly wrap it around your waist like in the photo.
Must-Haves for the Rainy Season in June
It is important to protect yourself from the sun during your stay in Japan. It is especially important to use high SPF sunblock while enjoying yourself outside.
Since the weather can change at the drop of a hat you should also prepare an umbrella that protects from both the sun and the rain.
We also recommend wearing waterproof shoes, which are easy to walk around in, specially designed for the rainy season.
