Hi there~!

It is July 18th! It is summer, it is summer!!!

Japan’s summer is humid and hot and cannot say it is very comfortable, but I came to notice that I probably like summer the best among all the seasons!!

I feel like I have to do something fun!!

Spring and Autumn are really nice seasons with nice climate, but guess I like summer the best.

Did not really think about that till now ( *´艸`).

What is big in Japan in summer is FIREWORKS~~~~! Yay~~~~~~~!!!!!
