Finally, the intense heat and humidity of summer has passed, being replaced by the coolness of Autumn. Autumn in Japan really lovely. Perfect temperatures to enjoy the outdoors, clear skies, beautiful birdsong in the morning (as opposed to the raucous cries of that bird, the name of which I forget, whose squawks are extremely noisy in the spring), still plenty of foliage (leaves fall later than in the UK), no need for any aircon or heater. The latest form of life to join the party on our balcony is these broccoli sprouts – just one week old. Right, time to relax and enjoy this sun!
