Tokyo logs record 141 days above 25 degrees Celsius in 2023

Japan's capital Tokyo on Saturday logged its 141st day this year that the mercury has hit 25 degrees Celsius or above, a record high.

As of 12:50 p.m. local time, the temperature in Tokyo reached an unseasonal 26.3 degrees Celsius, as a high-pressure system drove temperatures up from eastern to western Japan.

It was the first time since 2009 that central Tokyo saw a day high temperature hit 25 degrees Celsius in November, reaching the temperature threshold to be defined as a "summer day" in Japan.

The previous record number of summer days in Japan's capital was 140 days, reported in 2022.
