The rainy season has started in Tokyo. But so far - touch wood - it is a lot less strenous than usually. Look at the weather forecast. For a rainy season, we certainly are getting a lot of sun.
I have written before about how Japan has five seasons, with the exception of Hokkaido and Okinawa. Five seasons means the usual ones plus the rainy season.
Planning For A Rainy Day
When it rains in Japan, it can really pour. Tokyo is not like southwestern Japan, where they can get a hundred millimeters in a day. You had better plan for some activities when the weather is bad.
Although today is fine, and we plan to go to the park before lunch. But tomorrow looks like a good day for a museum visit.
I am Wisterian Watertree, recently moved from Tokyo to Sendai, previously of Bangkong and Honolulu. I write about travel, especially with our three beautiful kids (two girls and one boy, soon turning seven - yes. they are triplets). Travel is education and fun rolled into one, and if you are like me, that is something you want to give to your kids. If you want more tips and want to find out when I will publish something, get it from my email list.
