A summer festival has come back to life after an absence of nine years in the town of Shinchi in Fukushima Prefecture, where suffered serious damage in the 2011 tsunami.
The festival at the town's beach and fishing port had to be suspended after the disaster. But the event was able to make a reappearance with the completion of repairs to the beach access road and an embankment.
Much of Japan sweltered on Tuesday, as temperatures hovered around 35 degrees Celsius. Weather officials are urging people to take precautions against heatstroke, as the hot weather is expected to continue for about a week.
A high pressure system brought clear skies over much of northern and western Japan on Tuesday. The cloudless conditions helped temperatures soar.
The summer heat can sometimes get so unbearable where even a fan does little to nothing to cool us down, only ending up circulating the hot air in the process. However, if you’re in need of something a little stronger, Sony just might have the device for you in the form of the Reon Pocket, a wearable air conditioner that fits right in your pocket.
Now, the Reon Pocket will need a specially designed shirt in order to be clipped onto, and it can be activated or deactivated by using your smartphone and an accompanying app. It will sit on your neck where it will help to keep you cool during those hot summer days. That being said, the entire setup doesn’t exactly come cheap.
