    Cold Summer

    冷夏


    In Japan, most days of July in this year were rainy.
    今年の7月は、雨の日がとても多いです。

    Especially in Tokyo, the sunshine duration per day has been less than three hours for twenty consecutive days.
    東京では、20日連続で1日あたりの日照時間が3時間未満となっています。

    This severe lack of sunshine had a serious influence on agriculture, and the price of vegetables has risen strongly.
    深刻な日照不足は農業に大きな影響を与え、野菜などの農作物が高騰しています。

    Of course, the temperature is lower than ordinary years — it has been suggested that this summer may become reika (冷夏 – literally means “cold summer”) for the first time in 26 years.
    気温が低い日も続き、26年ぶりの冷夏になる可能性が示唆されています。

    In the swimming pool in Tokyo’s amusement park Toshimaen (としまえん), the number of people going to the pool decreased by 95% compared to the same period of the last year.
