vol.11 May 2021
Hello, We are in the middle of rainy season here in Japan. Rainy season is "Tsuyu" in Japanese, written as "梅雨" in Chinese character, each means "Plum & Rain". The reason for Plum & Rain is said that rainy season is the season when plums ripen.
There will be some cloudy and sunny days on and off, so we enjoy variety of weather in this Tsuyu season until it is over ♪
