Summer is called Natsu in Japanese. A season characterized by heat and high humidity. As someone who came from a tropical place like Indonesia, I'm used to the heat so it's fine. Bandung - the city I used to live before I got married - is situated in highland and surrounded by mountains. In dry season, the cool wind blows away the scorching heat of the sun and it's dry. But in Japan, summer is really humid. Our bodies are sticky with sweat （￣へ￣） I remember my first summer in Tokyo last year. The heat and humidity was unbearable （)´д`(） Even the wind was hot!! I felt as if I had been literally melting down. AC was on, blower was on... But hubby said last year's summer was unusually hotter in comparison to previous ones..
Luckily, now we have moved to Kurayoshi city - a rural city in Tottori prefecture. Our house is surrounded by mountains and greenery （⌒_⌒） Cool breeze alternates with the heat, serving as blower ヽ(^◇^*)/
