Rainy Spring in Japan.

Rainy weather here in Tokyo, thought it will be on Sunday.. I had to carry 2 bags, 1 plastic bag after my shopping, and an umbrella.. Woosh!
Spring is the best weather I like in Japan, and so do most Japanese. In Japan, when people start to have a nice girl or boyfriend, they say '' Haru ga kita'' which means spring has come.
April is the start of the new semester and work, besides the Western countries are September. But, it may change, as Tokyo-uni. is considering to make the new students entering at Sept. Not in the near future I think, but Japan is now trying to globalise with companies over-seas, so it may happen. If it would be, the whole education timeline will change, so it's quite complicated.
Anyway, tomorrow seems to be rainy and then clouded. You should keep your umbrella!

Japanese umbrellas

It's so windy and rainy today, my umbrella broke just as I started to use it!
In Japan, the weather frequently changes. In Spring, there are many days with a strong wind, and sometimes at the end of Summer, it suddenly rains hard with thunder which is called ''Yuudachi'', in Japanese.
If your umbrella get's broken, you can buy a cheap one which is called '' binniru-gasa'', plastic umbrella in English,which is about 300-400 yen, especially sold in convenience stores.
Also, you can buy it at 100yen-shops if there is around you.
I prefer to always keep a folding umbrella in your bag, and if the stormy weather comes, go and buy a cheap one!
