It's hot and miserable and I need to get out of here!
Ok, I know, I know, I do complain about the weater again and again, but it is really hot and miserable here in Japan now. I sleep in my nice room with the aircon on since I'd just be rolling about in my own sweat otherwise without any sleep (at least I keep it on "dry" which doesn't use that much energy). Every morning I get out of the bedroom to get ready for another exciting life as a high-powered corporate executive I get hit by a heatwave.
Even worse is on the trains and with a significant portion of my fellow salaryman not yet having discovered the invention of deodorant it can be both smelly and sweaty. Nothing I'd recommend.
I need to get out of Japan for a while, but thankfully plans are set in motion and in the very near future I will be able to cool of for a bit! If you're thinking of coming to Japan now, my recommendation is "don't"...
