‘Hachijyuhachiya’… It was so hot!!!
So this week’s weather is very important for many Japanese. It is the week of consequential national holidays, called Golden Week. Last week’s weather forecast projected the weather for yesterday and today to be cloudy and rainy. However it ended up that it rained only little yesterday and it was such a beautiful day today. Today’s highest temperature was 25.8 Celsius in Tokyo. It was really hot; I only needed a T-shirt, but no spring coat on. Today is also called Hachijyuhachiya;88th day since the New Year day when new tea leaves come out. For the next four more days till the end of long holidays, the weather seems stable keeping the highest temperature around 23~25 Celsius.
