summer is coming...

After weeks of cool days now the temperature becoming higher, this warm air forebode the coming Japanese summer - hot, humid Asian summer. Because of the expecting shortage of electricity caused by the accidents of power plants Japanese government demands 15% saving of electricity from all the companies & families during the daytime of this summer. In such climate, like its heat & humidity killed more than 200 people last summer, saving 15% electricity which means switching off the light & air-conditioning, is not easy, we all praying for the mild climate. We know it's not time to complain & we have no choice, so on internet we see countless information about "how to save electricity" now and... we are all prepared for the severe summer.

But compared with the cruelest situation in the damaged area in Tohoku-- despite the decrease of the report about the victims their situation is still unbearably severe, some lifelines are still stopped, it's very,very painful to read about them on newspaper or internet-- yes, we'll have to manage such small inconvenience.

Summer climate is tough, still... still it is a season of adventure, makes us bold, and makes us be open. So... come, summer. We'll see how we can manage this hard time and hopefully find our hidden strength.
