Good day people.
Well, Japan has entered into spring we thought.
The temperature was moving up into the high 10’s C, but yesterday all of a sudden it snowed.
Mind you, not enough to stay on the ground, it pretty much melted as soon as it hit, but nonetheless it has returned to normal again.
We should be able to shed our winter clothes soon.
Have you ever heard of the word Koromogae?
It means changing your clothes with the seasons. They actually have certain days if you can believe that.
Usually on the first of June and also on the first of October.
They wear lighter colored clothes in the summer months and heavier darker clothes in the winter.
It is a strange suction since even if it is still warm the winter clothes comes out.
It’s interesting to note that in the hot summer months,
the temperature inside the office buildings could be cold enough for people to think about those winter clothes.
Even the trains can be cold like winter in the summer with the air conditioners.
With this COVID 19 virus around, many people are spending more time at home and in outdoor areas where it is easier to create some social distance.
The perfect time to go to parks and look for the early cherry blossom buds to come out.
Yes, cherry blossom season is upon us.
Temples, shrines, parks and certain roads will be in full bloom soon so get out there and check out the blossoms.
WeBase encourages cultural exchange with those communities by promoting the original culture of all Japanese regions and the attractiveness of its communities to the world. We aim to create a real community that continuously makes young peoples’ worldwide travel fresh and exciting.
See you next week…
