It’s hot. Here in central Kanagawa, it was a scorcher today. Definitely the hottest day of the year so far here. And the rainy season just ended! We have another 2 months of 30+ weather. I took a video today talking about this.
So, how’s your weather today?
Nothing like an early typhoon to start the summer. While it was one of the strongest typhoons in years, it fizzled out as it passed over Japan. Here in the Tokyo area, it was very weak. I saw only light rain and winds that weren’t very impressive. However, I did make a video to chronicle what was happening. Enjoy.
This is a big typhoon. It’s the biggest typhoon to hit Okinawa in 15 years, and it’s headed straight for mainland Japan, and should be in the Tokyo area by Friday. Check out my video about the typhoon.
In case you’re wondering what Neoguri is, it’s actually the Korean word for raccoon dog, or tanuki as they are known in Japan. It’s a kind of wild dog that looks like a mix between a raccoon and a dog.
I’ll have a couple more videos coming later this week, most likely.
Here’s a quick video I took on Monday of a densha otaku, or a train fanatic. I usually don’t get the opportunity to find one in such an empty train station, but I did this time. After capturing him briefly on video, I then did my impression of a densha otaku.
This is a bit of a summary of what I’ve already talked about in the past on here, but now it’s in video form! Take a look at what I think of Japan’s seasons and the attitude that Japan’s uniqueness is partly because it has four distinct seasons.
Sorry about the sound in he beginning. It seems that the mic doesn’t work very well when I direct the screen away from me.
One thing that I find annoying to myself is that I speak far too slowly. I have to thank more than 9 years of teaching English in Japan for that. When I speak with other native English speakers, I’m quite normal, but for some reason, I slow down for the video. I need to fix that.

It’s been a while. No, I haven’t forgotten this blog. Just been incredibly busy with my writing and book blog. However, I have started something new. Vlogging. I’m making videos on YouTube, and many of them will be about Japan. So, please enjoy these videos and subscribe to my YouTube channel.
Here is my announcement video:
And here I take a quick look at rice fields with a surprise from my daughter.
And finally, I made a short video about Guarana Soda. Have you ever tried it? Actually, have you ever seen it?
Let me know what you think.
