May < 30ºC

We are still in May, however a week of over 30ºC abruptly reminded us that we are heading closer to the hot summer, even though we haven’t got our Tsu-yu yet.  Tsu-yu 梅雨 is the rainy season in Japan. Most parts of Japan will get to experience this month-long of  wet days except for Hokkaido, which is barely affected. Just when I thought I’m done with storing away the warm clothing and stuffs, I find myself busy again – decluttering the cupboards in my kitchen, stocking up summer essentials like so-men そうめん, mugi-cha 麦茶 or anything that could help to ease off the stifling heat in summer.
