Weather in Japan

A breakdown of typical weather in Japan around the time of the World Cup

Rugby World Cup begins on Friday 20 September 2019 and the final will take place on Saturday 2 November. This will be a great time of year to visit Japan weather wise because it won’t be too hot and it won’t be too cold either. Perfect weather for rugby and rugby spectating!


The weather in September can still be quite hot and humid, but the clouds of August have mostly disappeared.


October is one of the most pleasant months for traveling in Japan as the weather remains warm, but is not hot and humid anymore. Trees begin turning colours in the northern regions and higher elevations.


November is one of the best times to visit Japan, as the weather is relatively dry and mild, and the autumn colours are spectacular in many parts of the country. Travel activity tends to be low except around popular autumn leaf spots.
