|THE JAPANESE SUMMER|
Japan covers several climatic zones:
Therefore the climate is very different; from the cold-temperate climatic zone in Hokkaido with cold and snowy winters to the subtropics of the Okinawa Prefecture.
In central Japan there is usually a very hot summer with a lot of rain in July and a hot August with extremely high humidity.
There are air-conditioning systems everywhere in the buildings and transports, which are very cold for European conditions. Even on some platforms there are openings, from which cold air blows. I enjoy this, but for an average European these temperature differences are already extreme.
If you, as I do, are also looking for contact with nature, you suddenly stands in another, a moist-hot cosmos. A t-shirt is as sweat as in one hour like in one week of the European summer!
Very important is also the sun protection - even on cloudy days you can get a sunburn after a short time.
