Japan in August : Travel budget & tourist seasons.


Budget your trip depending on your departure time.

Beyond the tourist season (low, medium or high season) of the destination country, prices of your flight, hotel or all-inclusive stays may also vary depending on the demand in your country (our rates are evaluated from western Europe).

Thus, from western Europe, a stay will often be more expensive for a start during the school holidays.

In August, here's what you can expect on average:

  • All-inclusive stays: 3573 € / week

  • Round-trip flight: 832 €

  • Tourist season: high season

Depending on your exact destination, you can face more or less rain, the average amount of rain observed during August in Japan is 146 mm and you can have between 8 and 12 rainy days. If you want to avoid rain, your preferred destination could be Hiroshima.

Note that the gap in temperature between the different areas in the country is medium and the number of rainy days should be the same across the country. The country is rather climatically homogeneous in this season.

Japan: Climate & Weather


Describing the climate of Japan is not easy: The archipelago, long and covered with mountains, does not has the same climate characteristics in the north as the south.

In the north, the summers are short, winters last for months and snow is common, particularly in the West, whereas in the South, the weather is more hot and humid.

At the end of summer, it is not uncommon to suffer the onslaught of typhoons, accompanied by torrential rains.

Autumn brings mild temperatures with beautiful colours in the vegetation: This is the ideal season to visit Japan.

You will probably prefer this season to spring which, despite the undeniable charm of its flowering cherry trees mentioned by all the poets, sees Japanese tourists invading the most attractive places.
