The Japanese summer is very hot. Kansai is particularly hot.
Recently the highest temperature is not rare on a day more than 35 degrees Celsius either…
Japanese summer is already a summer of southern country…!?
Well, do you know Furin(wind chime)?
A tone of the wind chimes is the tone that can feel the cool.
That is why the Japanese people enjoys the tone of the wind-bell in hot summer from old days.
