Shinkansen (I)
Mood:  down
Topic: Climate

Shinkan sen (I)

Shinkansen has been considered as the safest train in the world.
Actually it is the anniversary of 40 years of Tokaido Shinaknsen.
And we never have any accidents for 40 years.

But a big earthquake hit Nigata area and the train de-railed .
This is really shocking news for Japanese.
Shinkansen is supposed to stop when an earthquake occurs in the area.
This time the source of earthquake is inland earthquake and the
depth of hypocenter is about 15 kilometer.
It hit Shinkansen almost without breaking.

To be continued

Typhoons
Mood:  down
Topic: Climate

Typhoon !!

18 typhoons already were born in this year and seven of them were landed in Japan.
This is another new record. In 1990 and 1993, 6 typhoons were landed in Japan.

When you are making a travel plan, it seems a smart way not to use airplane and ship.
They get an impact of typhoon directly and delay or cancel might happen.

Real hot summer in Tokyo
Mood:  down
Topic: Climate

"Summer heat day" stops

It is called "summer heat day" if the highest temperature is more than 30 degree centigrade.
Summer heat day continues for 40 days this summer.
It is really abnormal summer.

The weather station forecasts it will return to hot summer and continue after the low-pressure system passed.

Wishing bone?
Mood:  lucky
Topic: Climate

Good luck

This is Daruma.
The Japanese uses daruma in case of election or new business start.
Initially daruma doesn't have any eye.
Then wishing success, he put one eye on daruma.
If he succeeds in election or business, he puts another eye.

You see many darumas at souvenir shops.

Rainy season III
Mood:  not sure
Topic: Climate

Rainy season ends in Okinawa and Amami Islands

We have clear and hot day in Tokyo but the weather station doesn't announce the end of rainy season in Tokyo yet.
The southern islands like Okinawa and Amani island get into hot summer.

The rainy season front which has been stayed in is getting weaker and forced to retreat to northern area.because atmospheric high high in Pacific ocean is getting stronger.

Typhoon
Mood:  bright
Topic: Climate

Irregular Typhoon

Typhoon No 6 had landed in Shikoku and Kinki chiho.
It is very rare to have a typhoon in this season.
The size of this typhoon is also fairly big.

Many irregular things are going on.
It may be caused by global warming.

Since the typhoon has gone by tomorrow, it will be fine day tomorrow.

Where can you buy an umbrella?
Mood:  blue
Topic: Climate

Rain again in Tokyo!

It's raining whole day.
It becomes difficult to catch a taxi when it rains.

If you forget to bring an umbrella, don't worry. You can buy it at convenience stores, shopping centers, drug stores and department stores.
But the price varies from 100 Yen to 5000 Yen.

Let try to find a "100Yen shop".
It's the best way!

Typhoon
Mood:  blue
Topic: Climate
We had a typhoon yesterday.
It is the second one.
Normally it doesn't come close to Japan.
Therefore it is told that May is a good season to visit Japan.
It is really irregular to have a typhone in May.
Global warming makes these changes?
