Kyoto Weather 京都の雨
Kyoto can be pretty wet and waterproofs are a good idea when out on the temple trail. Hotels, shops and department stores will often provide plastic covers for umbrellas and if you get caught in a downpour without an umbrella, convenience stores will quickly have a supply of clear plastic umbrellas on sale from about 300-500 yen in cost.
October, November and December are good months to visit anywhere in Japan when day-time temperatures are warm and rainfall is low. September is the typhoon season and there may be heavy storms.
