June Digest

Japan has entered a rainy season. Downpour is causing floods in many places of western Japan. Please check out the weather forecast in your area and if it’s bad, just stay inside or go to a nearby safe shelter. However, it is expected that the rainy season is going to be over next week in Kyushu. Stay focused on the weather forecast.
