Warm Rain

Japan Rainy SeasonMonsoon season (Tsuyu, 梅雨) is about to begin in Miyazaki, on time. The weather is warm, and it will rain here for the next 6-7 weeks.

On average, we get about 60-90 cm (2-3 feet) 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.

It’s a nice feeling when nature does things on time!
