“Tsuyu-iri” rainy season starts in Japan

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.   Okami  😥
