Rainy Season Over in Kansai

梅雨明け

Rainy season is now officially over in Kansai and other parts of Japan.

This year the season of drizzle and gray skies and humidity started much earlier than usual and, thankfully, has ended earlier.

In Kyoto, the traditional end to rainy season is said to occur by July 17, the day of Gion Festival.

We are still well shy of the big day, and blue skies punctuated by light-as-cotton clouds were a clear departure from the weather of the last few days.

Blistering high-summer temperatures were another sign that rainy season has gone.

Thank god.
