October is an excellent month to visit Tokyo. I rate October as one of the best months to visit Tokyo. The weather is really good, with bright sunny days, very little rain fall and the temperature is still warm to enjoy getting outdoors. The average day time temperature in Tokyo in October is 20°C (68°F), warmer at the beginning of the month as it is Autumn, so cools down at the end of the month.
There are some great events, festivals and activities in Tokyo on October.
Check out these things to do and see in Tokyo in October:
