Weather in Kyoto

The best time to visit Kyoto is during spring (March to May) and autumn (September to November), when agreeable weather corresponds with a variety of major cultural events. Kyoto is also exceptionally picturesque at these times, with cherry blossoms flowering anytime from late March to early April, and leaves turning gold and red during November. However, the city is extremely crowded during these seasons too, so book accommodation well in advance. Although Kyoto summers (June to August) are particularly hot and humid, its winters are very chilly, though the sights of the ancient capital can be enjoyed throughout the year.
