Weather in Osaka

The best times to visit Osaka are during the spring, for the scenic cherry blossoms and the Osaka Basho sumo tournament, and during the summer, when there are a wonderful array of festivals with spectacular parades and fireworks to enjoy. While the summer months can be fiendishly hot; there are afternoon sea breezes from the port that help cool things down. If you want to miss the big crowds and high hotel prices, try to avoid Golden Week (29 April and 3-5 May).
