This is Yusa from Sakura Hostel Asakusa.
Rainy season was finally finished.
Hello summer sunshine★
What things do you imagine when you hear "summer"?
I guess every counries have summer shmboles.
Of couse Japan too.
This time, I infroduce some of them.
☆Semi / Cicada 蝉
I have memory of going out to catch cicada with friends and father with a net.
Most of all kids have this kind of memory.
☆Fu-rin / wind bell 風鈴
Fu-rin is to make us feel wind.
They sound like a bell when they are flowed by wind.
You can hear sound of Fu-rin everywhere in Japan.
☆Suica / water melon 西瓜
Kids really love Suica.
I eat it with salt.
How do you eat?
Also we play with suica to crack with stick and eyemask!
I'm positive to say that all Japanese agree with these things for summer symbols.
Please feel Japanese "Summer" atomosphere!
