The rainy season is believed to be over in the Kanto-Koshin region of eastern Japan that includes Tokyo, the weather agency said Thursday.
The season ended 18 days later than last year and seven days later than average, the Meteorological Agency said.
The region is likely to see sunny days and high temperatures for the next week or so, the agency said, warning of the increased risk of heat exhaustion and heatstroke.
The agency has declared the rainy season over for all but the Tohoku region in the northeast. Hokkaido does not have a rainy season.
