Japan’s rainy season coming soon.

From the end of spring to early summer, it is the rainy season.
We call it TSUYU(梅雨), literally meaning Japanese apricot rain. Although there are some theories, because this period is the same as the period Japanese apricot matures.
When TSUYU begins depends on the area. In KANSAI area, OSAKA and some prefectures around OSAKA, TSUYU usually begins from early June and it continues almost a month.
In this season, the light rain continues whole day, also it is hot and humid, so TSUYU period is one of the most unpleasant seasons in Japan.
