August witnessed record rainfall and little sunlight in Japan.
In Japan as a whole and here in Kyoto, it was a wet month.
As a result of two large typhoons (#11 and #12) and other storms, there was flooding, a major landslide, and much crop destruction. And on the bike, the month was a drag.
In Kyoto, rainfall measured 487 mm, which is 3.7 times the normal average rainfall.
Good riddance summer and welcome to Kyoto's storied fall weather.
