A mom’s reason why rainy season rules

Anyone else here a parent who gets frustrated by the sun coming up here at 4am-ish at this time of year? I know that my kids think it’s appropriate to start the day every day at around 5 am when the sun has already been up close to an hour. When they’re go-go-go all day that means I’m a zombie by bedtime.

Rainy season though? Those gloomy skies create a layer of darkness that keeps them in their beds longer. The soft pitter-pattering of raindrops hitting the roof acts like a white noise machine. It makes for perfect sleeping conditions and counteracts the birds chirping and waking us all up!

Tsuyu, stick around as long as you like!



After spending the last several years in the beating heart of Tokyo, I will be spending the next three in the countryside of Japan. I adore this country and all it has to offer - and I'm always learning more and more about life here as I go along!
