At Tatebayashi city in Gunma prefecture, they have a Tsutsujigaoka Koen park near the city hall. This park is very famous for big azalea tree. In summer, there are lotus flowers and they ply the lotus watching boat. Tatebayashi is also known as sultry place in Japan. Last Monday’s temperature was over 39.2C degree (it was the hottest record of this year in Japan. Walking on the heating road, I was dizzy. The Meteorological Agency said rainy season finished on July 17th. Yes, now it becomes completely summer. Lotus opens petals at the early morning, but I arrived in the afternoon. The face of flowers seemed to be little bit sleepy and tired.
