Hottest day in Kofu this summer

As I wrote yesterday, summer seems to be mild this year. Summer, however, has come anyway; the temperature raised up to 30 degree C today in Kofu. I used an electric fans in the office. We are trying to save energy again this summer. The governments is repromoting “Super Cool Biz“.  Japanese business outfits did change in a casual direction last year.

In the evening, I went to a tennis lesson alone after half a year to Kose Sports Park. The temperature got lowered in the evening. The lesson was … Continue reading
