Ah, summer in Tokyo. Some say it has been long with typical days in the 90s with 80% + humidity. With Elaine a bit tied down with her foot and John with his busiest summer ever we have stayed in Tokyo most of the time. Fortunately, both of us have not had any physical problems with the heat (except cabin fever). We did have a few glorious vacation days by the lake near Mount Fuji to enjoy the natural air conditioning of the mountains. The weather was excellent and the lake never more inviting. Camping outdoors is also good as we get away from email, phones, computers and TV.
