Kanagawa on a Rainy Day

It’s no secret that rainy days can severely unravel any travel plans—but in Kanagawa, a rainy day might just show you new facets of the prefecture’s charms that you may have otherwise overlooked. Don’t let rainy day blues keep you away from discovering your next favorite escape destination. 

Japan’s rainy season (known as tsuyu) typically lasts from mid-June to mid-July in Kanagawa. Higher temperatures—that mark the start of summer—and extra rainfall can lead to higher humidity levels, but it is still a great season to venture out and see what Kanagawa has to offer. Just come equipped with an umbrella and wear breathable, light fabrics to beat the humidity.

Take cover from the rain at choice spots from around Yokohama, Kawasaki, Hakone, Kamakura, and other parts of Kanagawa prefecture. From culinary or art experiences, museums, indoor activities, shopping, or a romantic umbrella stroll by some of the most famous architecture, uncover Kanagawa’s rainy day secrets for yourself and see why the prefecture is just as beautiful come rain or shine.
