Another post about summer heat. When Sky Tree is barely visible in a hazy, sullen sky, you know it’s going to be a mōshobi (猛暑日), which means a fiercely hot day of 35+ degrees. I took this photo at 6 am, when it was already 31 with a “real feel” of 38. Japan is currently experiencing a heat wave with temperatures above 40 in certain areas. Hang in there, folks, and drink lots of water or, even better, beer.
