Oh the signs are subtle, but it’s really just around the corner. I was able to walk from Tenjin to Canal City to Hakata station and arrived only hot and sweaty, not dying for air conditioning. 100 yen store Seria already has Hallowe’en goods out. Fall products are showing up at Starbucks, 7-11 and elsewhere. And in a week or so temps will drop down to 26 or 27 a sure sign of fall on the way.
Can’t wait! I can start walking everywhere again, and I’m looking forward for a lot of day trips on those weekends I’m in town.
