Summer Climate in Hokkaido
The summers are mild and pleasant, and by July it is hot enough to wear a T-shirt during the daytime, but the mornings and evenings, lakes, and mountains are a little too cool for short sleeves, so be sure to bring a parka or long sleeved top. By mid-August, the temperature can exceed 30 degrees Celsius, but by late August, a cool breeze begins to blow.
