In Season


Summer in Obuse runs from May through August. The average temperature is 31ºC between May and June and 35ºC between July and August. Obuse has relatively little summer rainfall compared to the rest of Japan so the humidity is comparatively low and it is pleasant in the shade. Chestnut blossoms flower in the early summer while August and the Ogon holiday brings traditional events like summer festivals and the Ohana-ichi street market.
