cartoon of man sweating under hot sunI just got back to Tokyo from a month and a half in wintry Australia and blimey! The heat is overwhelming. It was 25+ degrees over night and like a Sauna out there again today. I don’t know whether to go drinking to cool down or just to stay off the sauce altogether. A hang-over is the last thing you need in this heat…
Luckily the Japan Times has some tips on how to avoid succumbing to heat exhaustion, 夏ばて- pronounced NATSUBATE.
They include Sleep, Exercise, Sobayu, eel, cold fish soup and no nastubating(!).

Martin has some more tips.

Thanks to Houston for the image.

    Tell me about it… Actually it’s not too bad as for now I am enjoying the sun after the cold and rain of Australia. I guess I’ll get fed up of the heat soon, but it should start cooling down within a month, so I’ll survive.
