I love Japan's summer not only because of its yucky sticky hot weather, especially around Central Japan, but also because of the fact that so many festivities such as fire-works and Bon-dances take place locally. The transitional season from summer to autumn might even be better than the middle of summer as people including geeks, dorks, costume-players and even robots go out to enjoy the sun before miserable freezing winter strikes here.

Strangely enough, this year might have experienced the driest autumn ever in history as I could only count with my five fingers how many days it's properly rained in and around Nagoya.
I remember it was Typhoon No.18 (aka ETAU) which was the only one that passed Central Japan within a few hours on September 9th and then my beloved humid summer drastically disappeared ever since; Normally, we have at least two or three typhoons coming very close or passing by and the sticky summer lingers on till late September. A shame.
The photo below shows Nagoya's blue sky right after ETAU rushed through us.

Surfing-wise, there has been no shortage of typhoons for Japan, and for me.
Many thanks to the effects of El Niño, I scored lots of waves around the coast of Aichi and Shizuoka, although I must admit that this El Niño phenomenon completely changed the swell directions in comparison to those swells generated by the past typhoons; We had tons of swells coming from south east in the Pacific this year, whereas, many typhoons usually emerge south west of Japan. Bizarre!

No overseas travels and no surf adventures to be had recently, but I've discovered something to die for. It's a Japanese ice cream called "たい焼きアイス - Taiyaki Ice" with vanilla and sweet red beans in it. I can have three or four of these at once!
