What does “Tsuyu” mean?
Rainy season is called “tsuyu (梅雨)” in Japanese.
When the rainy season starts, it’s called “tsuyu-iri”.
It means “entering the rainy season”.
This year’s “tsuyu” has supposedly started yesterday in Tokyo.
It varies when the season starts depending on where you are in Japan.
But June is well know for “tsuyu”.
I hate rainy season… It’s depressing.
How long is the rainy season in Japan?
It lasts about one a half month. It’s too long!!!
By the time the rainy season ends, hot and more humid summer starts.
I missed the good spring season in Tokyo this year because I was in the U.K.
Now I have to survive the rainy season.
