Unprecedented temperatures for the month of June hit western Japan on June 23 and 24, 2022, in the middle of the rainy season.

In Nobeoka, the temperature on June 23 rose to 36.1 °C (97 °F), making it its highest June temperature since records started in 1961.

Excessive heat continued to grip Japan on June 24, with Tokamachi, located in one of Japan’s snowiest regions, recording 37.1 °C (99 °F). This is the highest temperature ever recorded there.

“Even hotter conditions are on the cards for the Tokyo area during the weekend,” meteorologist Sayaka Mori said. “Stay cool!”
