July

Beginning of July is still in "Tsuyu" and it will be over by arrival of Typhoon. Typhoon is very strong storm. You can't use umbllera because wind is too strong to open it. Most Typhoon takes 2-3 days to pass Japan. So, stay in when Typhoon is coming, and never goes too close on river or sea. It is very dengous.

After Typhoon are gone, Japanese hot summer starts. Most beaches open at the middle of July, and fireworks are the sign of beginning of summer. Around the end of July, fireworks festival hold everywhere in Japan.

On July 7, there is Tanabata Festival. Tanabata comes from famous folk-tail "Orihime and Hikoboshi." Also, there are many kinds of Japanese style summer festival at the endo of July. At the same time, Summer Break for school kids begins.
