Autumnal Equinox Day is one of the national holidays in Japan and we pay respect to our ancestors and remember the recently deceased.
Although it is often said that the daytime will become shorter and the lengths of day and night will be equal, actually the daytime is a little longer.
Also, there is the equinoctial day of Higan(equinoctial week) and we eat Ohagi(bean cake) and worship our ancestors.

Prevalence of Rubella

According to the National Institute of Infections Diseases, the number of patients suffering from rubella has been increasing mainly in the Kanto region. We are advised to wash our hands many times and to be more careful not to get in contact with sick people.
Especially pregnant ladies should be more cautious not to be infected as this disease can affect babies. It would be effective for them to be vaccinated before getting pregnant.

Rainy Season in Japan

In Japan, there is a rainy season called “TSUYU” where we especially have a lot of rain. We usually experience this season for one month and a half from June up until July.
During this period, we might feel that our physical condition weakens due to high humidity and high temperature. We should be careful of food poisoning as well.
