Tokyo region wise I find that it is always common to have rainy weather, but it is not those kind of stormy typhoon kind that commonly hits JP during Summer period like during August/Sept periods.

When I was there last yr Nov, I did remembered during my Tokyo stay there are occassional rainy days but is really just those type of drizzling kind. But we all know how persistent the rainfall can be in Tokyo which can typically last from morning times up till evenings whole day one, so just kindly remember to prep an umbrella before you head out of yr hotel can liao.

get those transparent disposable umbrella that is widely available when it starts to rain. very convenient when walking around city areas. coz u will be going in and out of building, and it is quite a hassle use those foldable ones.

the rain volume is still something to concerned about XD

drizzle that last for most of the day is kinda par for the course

not sure if i should bring along the ones i bought the last time. haven't checked if they fit into my 24" luggage. cheap but kinda wasteful to buy again. haha hold in hand not hassle?

drizzle can be irritating, was drizzling in kyoto when i went in winter, feb 2014. ground wet and slippery all around the temples, especially fushimi inari and higashiyama area also.

My experience is rain is rare. maybe 10% of day in November.

Raining sure hassle one. Last Dec it also rained on me when I went hiking at Mt Rokko.

If you have bought a folding umbrella last time, this time buy a full size automatic? The full size ones are the most convenient for opening and closing all day going in and out of buildings. And keeps you drier of course. The new Tokyu Hands model for this year is really good. I tested mine in typhoon weather in July. 4 of us were walking along the road. A sudden strong gust of wind broke all the 3 other umbrellas instantly. I was the only one with a working umbrella when we reached our destination.

think it was only 200 or 300yen for the umbrella. just get new one loh.
it is easier to use those plastic tube bag for wet umbrella if urs is the long one. foldable umbrella u still need to fold and harder to stuff into the bag.


but yah, it is a hassle if are going to spend some time in a big mall. but if u are going from building to building then more convenient, no need to fold and unfold.


rain is really sianz. it rained when I went up alpine route, and we already booked an accommodation up there, so cant change day. rain until totally cannot see anything. and the rained continued to the next day when we went down


tt is y I always recommend basing ur accommodation in 1 location if possible, so u have flexibility to change plan in case of bad weather.
for example, if visiting Kyoto and Osaka, just stay throughout in one of the place. then if it is raining on the day u planning to visit Kyoto, then just switch to going Osaka and go shopping or aquarium
