May 19, 2006 – So much rain

So much rain. So very much rain.

There was no rain when I left for work today, but it was absolutely pouring when my shift was over. I didn’t have an umbrella with me, but an umbrella likely wouldn’t have been much help anyway. I decided to just bike home as quickly as possible. Fun fact: Japanese people give you some very strange looks when they see you riding a bike home with no umbrella in a downpour.

By the time I got home all of my clothes were soaked right down to my underwear. I was actually able to pour water out of my shoes!

Rain is serious business in Japan.
