Nagomi-no-wa weather forecast for this summer!!

Hello, everyone!

According to the weather forecast, this summer is going to be a cool one. Do you think this is bad? Actually, this is not just bad.
The summer in Kyoto is extremely hot because of the humidity. You cannot compare with the other cities in Japan. This is because Kyoto is surrounded by mountains except the south side, and warm air comes into Kyoto from there, then the sun heat it up, hear it up and heat it up…It is like being in a sauna all the day! :-S

So, having a cool summer is a good news in some points! There are lots of events going on then. Gion festival, the most famous festival in Kyoto, is in the middle of July. Also, there are lots of Japanese festivals (Matsuri) and fireworks during summer!! Let’s go out for these events wearing Yukata (Japanese traditional clothes) like we Japanese normally do. That would be the best memory of traveling in Kyoto. We have an activity, "Kimono-experience", which you can try to wear Kimono/Yukata. Check this web page for more detail!

We never know how the weather will be, but we are sure that you can enjoy Kyoto anyway, not depending on weather or season… ;-)

Looking forward to seeing you at our guesthouse!
