How to live during the rainy season




Japan has four seasons. In addition, there is the rainy season called Tsuyu. Generally it keeps raining from June to the end of July, and humidity level becomes very high.

High humidity makes us uncomfortable, furthermore things get mold and foods easily turn spoiled.

1) Mold stays in humid and dark places. Bags and clothes often get mold even they are treasured in the closet. In fine weather, you should ventilate the rooms and bathroom by opening the doors and the windows once in a while. Put Sunoko ( strainer board ) or Kansouzai ( desiccant agent ) in Oshiire (closet). Sunoko and desiccant agent are sold at supermarkets and convenience stores.

2) In the rainy season, foods get easily spoiled. Wash your hands before cooking and eating. Wash raw vegetables and seafoods thoroughly with running water. Stock perishable foods in the refrigerator or freezer. As most bacteria cannot survive under a high temperature, cook meat and seafood thoroughly. Keep cooking utensils clean, especially knives and cutting board by sterilizing bacteria using boiling water. Let us wash your hands with soap before you eat.
