I embrace the suck and go to Okinawa or the Izu islands.

AC is part of the problem in city heat islands

Without it, 100s of thousands, if not millions, of people would die in Tokyo every summer of heat-related illnesses. The solution is to put dense greenery in as many places as possible, as the Singaporeans have done, and reduce population growth.

I go to London. Off soon.

The supermarket. Fabulous AC everywhere.

Shirahama in Izu. Nothing but bikini babes, beach, boomboxes, booze and beer. What else do you need?

My living room, with the AC at a mild 23 degrees

A quiet stretch of river in the mountains just outside Tokyo. But I ain't telling you where it is.

We've luckily got a place at Naeba Ski resort. Nobody is ever there in the summer save for the Fuji Rock Festival so its nice to enjoy a long weekend or a few days off up there here and there. Quick drive down to get groceries and some good local restaurants.

Sometimes the local mall in Tokyo. Unlike malls in the US, Japanese malls have very good food courts with a variety of Japanese and ethnic foods. My favorite mall in Kawasaki has an excellent Korean food stall with great reimen.

If you had said 18 degrees, I would've helped you out with a thumbs up.

AC is part of the problem in city heat islands, not part of the solution.
