About September and October Weather in Kansai
It will still be warm in September, so clothes are generally the same as in the summertime. You should wear thin, light and breathable clothing. You will see a lot of people around town in sandals. In late September the temperature will steadily drop, and when it rains you may feel cold. It will be cold in short sleeves, so you should bring something with long-sleeves or three-quarter length sleeves. Early October and late September have about the same weather, but by the end of October, the weather will often suddenly turn cold, so you will find a knit sweater or light coat to be handy. USJ is close to the sea, so there is a marked difference in temperature between morning and night. Be sure to bring something to ward against the cold, and enjoy your trip.
