Not so fun in the sun – Cases of heatstroke hit a year-high last week in Japan

It has become so commonplace for people to keep talking about heat-storokes in summer in Japan these days: how many people died, how many hospitalized; turn on the air-conditioner, do not turn it off at night, do rehydrate yourself, and kids and the elder, regularly.

I guess it got much better this week, but be extra careful when you’re in Japan in summer.



The end of July has brought soaring temperatures of over 35 degrees Celsius (95 degrees Fahrenheit) to certain parts of Japan. As we saw this past weekend, the oppressive heat was even enough to make Tokyo Disneyland look almost deserted, an unheard-of feat.

While your first temptation may be to cool off at the beach, remember to take precautionary safety measures anytime you’re under the sun–last week also saw the highest number of cases of heatstroke in Japan this year-to-date.
