Westin Miyako Kyoto







Clothing Note: Kyoto has a temperate northern hemisphere climate with clearly defined seasons and predictable weather patterns. April heralds a warm spring full of excitement for celebrating much cherished cherry blossoms. Innumerable green hues in temple areas offer respite from summer heat. Autumn brings bright reds and yellows that harmonize with the historic monuments from October to December. The silence brought by an occasional dusting of snow is said to be the best way to appreciate Kyoto during winter.

  • Temperatures during the Spring months of April, May & June average a high of 75°F (24°C) and low of 56°F (13°C).
  • Temperatures during the Summer months of July, August & September average a high of 88°F (31°C) and low of 72°F (22°C).
