Tsuyu

Japan Rainy SeasonMonsoon season (“Tsuyu”) just started in Southern Japan, on time. The weather is warm, and it will rain here for the next 6-7 weeks.

It’s a nice feeling when nature does things on time!  On average, we get about 2-3 feet (60-90 cm) of rain during May and June.  Though in a heavy season it can rain a few times more than that.

Tsuyu is an integral part of living in Japan, except for the Northern territories in Hokkaido.  It changes the landscape and brings life to lush vegetation.  You learn to live with it, and some like me even get to like it!
