It was announced yesterday that the 2013 rainy season has officially commenced in Kyushu, Chugoku, and Shikoku regions of Japan.
That is a bit earlier than a normal year.
Kyoto and the Kansai area, which are north of those regions, are also expecting an earlier than usual start to the six-week rainy season.
The weather lady this morning on NHK said that rainy season will begin on June 7 here in Kyoto.
For cyclists, it is not all bad. Days can be cool and rain-free.
