Welcome to Ninjapan Blog. What is like Summer in Japan?
Have you ever been to Japan for travel? Some of you might think to travel to Japan.
So, I summarized how is summer in Japan?
“Japan’s summer is hotter than in the home country.” A survey of 150 Japanese residents in Japan about the summer in Japan found that 70% answered. Three-quarters of them have experienced summer batter. In the hot and humid summer of Japan, foreigners are struggling to feel like they are in a sauna.
The survey was conducted online in June. Respondents from North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia / Oceania, Middle East / Africa living in Tokyo answered.
83.3% of those with a hot image from the Middle East and Africa said that “Japan is hotter than their country of origin”, accounting for 71.3% of the total. In addition, 46.7% of Japan’s summer heat is “unbearable”. “Cool” and “cold” was zero.
75% and 3% experienced summer batties after coming to Japan, such as “slimy body” and “cannot sleep”.
Comments include “very humid as if in a sauna” (from Europe), “always sweat with a combination of heat and moisture” (from North America), and “dampness is likely to make breathing difficult “It’s so stuffy” (from Asia and Oceania).
Due to the hot and humid climate peculiar to Japan, many people in Japan feel hotter than their home country.
Why is it so HOT?
There are pros and cons around the world, but one is said to be caused by global warming. In Japan, the temperature is rising every year and can reach nearly 40 degrees.
That’s why the marathon is held in Sapporo at the Tokyo Olympics. If it were held in Tokyo in the summer, the risk of a player falling over due to heatstroke would be very high.
In a nutshell, it’s like being in a sauna.
As I mentioned earlier, it’s like a sauna, but the summer in Japan is very humid. Most foreigners who come to Japan say that the hottest part of Japan’s heat is humidity. On average around 80%, you really feel like being in a sauna.
Although Japan is an island country, it has mountains and buildings, and it is easy to heat up.
If you walk a little, you will not stop sweating, and if you do not take hydration and minerals properly, you will collapse due to heatstroke.
There are many sweets for heatstroke in Japan, so be sure to buy them.
Heat island phenomenon
What comes to mind when you imagine Japan?
In fact, there are factors that make summer hot in big cities. Especially in Tokyo, the ground is covered with asphalt and there is no place to absorb heat.
So, even at night, the heat stays in Tokyo and you can’t sleep.
In Japan, you cannot sleep at night without a cooler.
It ’s so hot
I think some people have learned in school geography.
Typhoons come to Japan every summer.
A typhoon is a cloud of water that evaporates in the sea near the equator, which develops into a typhoon and comes to Japan.
The recent typhoons are very strong and cause many disasters.
Because it comes from the south, it carries the hot southern atmosphere with it.
So after the typhoon, I feel very sullen and uncomfortable.
How to take measures?
There are vending machines all over Japan. When you are sightseeing, you may wonder why this is so. If you come to Japan in the summer, you can see why. No matter how much you drink, your throat will dry.
If you come to Japan for sightseeing in summer, be sure to get a drink. The juice of a pet bottle also becomes hot water in about 30 minutes. Convenience stores also sell frozen PET bottles, so try buying one.
When humans sweat, many minerals flow out with moisture. In addition, water in Japan is soft water and contains no minerals. Even if you drink only water, you will suffer from heatstroke and headaches.
So sports drinks and salt tablets are sold in Japan.
This can replenish minerals flowing with sweat, such as citric acid and salt.
You can also buy it at convenience stores.
Please buy it because it is very delicious.
Thank you for reading my blog.
I hope you found the solution. Japan is such a warm country all over the world.
So, please take care of your self your trip.
