These people could do with a break. Flooded, then scorched and now a typhoon to look forward to.

What a crappy month.

It’s gonna sweep across the coast just south of Tokyo around 5-6pm tomorrow. It is quite a small typhoon, but very intense. It’s also moving very fast, which will most likely change after it makes landfall. Hopefully it will dissipate a lot before it gets to Wakayama and the other flood hit regions. Tokyo is gonna cop the brunt of it though.

Oh, what a welcome in my first week in Japan! Is it going to hit Aichi-Ken?

Even though there are some rotten apples in Japan, I'm glad there are communities that pull together in times like this to help each other and the country.
