I have a few days off from the project this coming week, and since it’s too short to go back home I decided to go to Tokyo. My short stay-over there in May was just too short to see enough of the city! This time of year the typhoons keep rolling in from the Pacific – another one hit the Phillipines just today – so that is something to keep an eye on. The temperatures in Japan have gone down already from the summer highs. The 27 27 25 at the bottom of NHK TV’s weather map is for 大阪 Osaka, 名古屋市Nagoya and 東京都 Tokyo respectively. (25ºC is 77ºF).
