I know I have already mentioned this, but in Japan it rains. A lot. It has been raining for two days. And not drizzle rain, but POURING rain. 2 days. However, three days, even four days ago it was brilliant sunshine and the only thing to complain about was the mosquitoes. (I have 14 bites already, 2 on my face. stop laughing.) So when the heavens opened, we were quite surprised. Were the Japanese? Hell no. They can tell exactly when it is going to rain. Its a super power (see Storm from x-men). Every single Japanese person on the street that day was carrying one of their trusty golf size umbrellas. And yes, I have been looking at the weather forecast, but the British ones are always wrong! How was I to know the Japanese come with built in barometers?!
Only up side to being drenched daily is getting into pyjamas at 5:00pm - although I did find some rice in my bed this morning, bad chopstick skills at dinner.
