Many people say that they hate summer time in Tokyo. Main reason being the ungodly heat the city generates in the summer months. I remember last summer very well. While it did get hot as a whore house on payday; I had one hell of a good time. It is much more easy to get out and about during summer in Tokyo.
I may be from the mountains, yet I hate cold weather! I have survived many blizzards in the mountains in West Virginia. No matter what kind of evil winter I toughed out in West Virginia, I still developed no love for cold ass weather. A winter in Tokyo is kind enough to spare me the hell of endless snow; although the wind and cold temperatures are not fun to handle. All of that is behind me for at least the next few months.
Anyway, I am wondering why anyone would complain about hot weather? Whenever I start to think it is too hot I remind myself of the bitter cold winter. I would much rather prefer it to be too hot, as opposed to, it being too cold. All the blank high buildings casting tall shadows on the cold gray streets below is a real downer during the winter. Winter has a way of sucking the life out of Tokyo at times. There is also the fact the hanging out at Yoyogi park loses all of its fun during the winter.
Anyway, summer is now here and I am damn glad. I can do more stuff and enjoy life more. There is no more cold wind and low temperatures to slow me down.
