Photographer's Note

This was my strongest impression of Japan: hot and humid, very humid. I probably wasn't prepared for the surprise, expected a similar climate to other areas situated well north of the equator. I happened to be there just before a couple of typhoons hit land. Feeling slightly damp at all times was not amusing, and of course carrying a backpack didn't make things better either. I learned to appreciate air conditioning, and pretty much anything that could be called "indoors" was air conditioned. You get in the bus, the shirt dries after a while, you forget... and then you get out and it hits you again.
Far from me the intention of saying that it wasn't a great experience, in contrary, I really appreciated it (as a tourist). But the heat and humidity still remain my strongest impressions, followed closely by how amazingly friendly and honest are the people. Most of them.
Taken in Ginza, not far away from the Central Station. The locals don’t seem to generally have an issue with the heat, and I was pretty happy to catch this convincing proof that it was indeed too damn hot.
