Summer begins somewhat coolly with a rainy season but when this ends in late June, much of the country is characterised by hot, humid days.
Balmy evenings can be spent enjoying the numerous fireworks displays that light up the summer skies across Japan.
Summer is the time for rice planting, an activity that is celebrated in many festivals around the country.
It is also the best season for hikers and climbers to explore the mountains and forests of Japan. Climbing Mt Fuji to watch a spectacular sunrise is a popular summertime activity. The climbing season runs from July 1 to August 31.

Ema and lantern
Shrine visitors write their wishes on these wooden plates (EMA) and then leave them at the shrine in the hope that their wishes come true.
Most people wish for good health, success in business, passing entrance exams, love or wealth.
There are a few of these lantern leading to the main hall..
Japanese lanterns were originally introduced by China. The first ones were made of metal and primarily used to light doorways to shrines and temples.
They were later made of granite stone for use in gardens, but it wasn't until they were introduced into japanese tea gardens by tea-master Sen-no-Rikkyu did they really become a major garden element.
Japanese tea ceremonies were often held in the evenings and light was needed to guide guests to the tea room.
