Every day, the hot day continues. In the daytime, when I appear in a passage, I will see well the person who was wearing the hat, and the person who pointed to the parasol. Solar heat reflects directly and, probably, most urban roads are promoting heat since it is paved with asphalt. It is best to fully supply moisture, and to air-condition and rest at home on such days so that we may not get heatstroke. Global warming is said and it is long. A climate change may originate by the rise of the sea temperature according to El Niño-Southern Oscillation, the increase of population the earth and the destruction of nature by felling of tropical forest, etc. Anyway, I want a cool season to come early.

Dear Kato, these images collectively create a strong impression of how people are affected by the long, unrelentingly hot days of summer.I like the inclusion of the pigeon which shows that it's not only humans who feel the heat. Pity we don't know what the cool, blue sign promises. Best wishes. Klaudio.

This is a nice collection of photos (not too small) illustrating the present heat in Japan. They are colourful and lively and all very well spotted and combined they tell a story. I wouldn't mind some of that heat at least for a short time. In northern Europe we have more or less had a cool season for the last 12 months.

a very well laid out composition of four lovely and interesting pictures about a hot day in he city. The four scenes make a delightful and comprehensive whole and support each other's content superbly. I love the great sharpness and effective blurriness in all of them. Lighting is masterful and the colours beautiful and pleasant. A wonderful idea carried out very skillfully. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,

A beautiful mosaic collection of daily life showing how everyone is dealing with the heat index. You are right that we has humans have finally stepped over the line, and really have pissed off Mother Nature, and she's really going to teach us a lesson, I pray we learn from Her, because were not going to get a second chance!!
Excellent colors, light management, and clarity in all four photo picks. Loving your POV series combined as one, great job Mikio!!

Love it, something completely different, well done Kato even more so considering the lengths you had to go to, to achieve the results you wanted. A nice warm street pictures cleverly arranged well exposed and good variation of colors, unifying all the different activities and holds them all together making this a very effective montage. Great ideas and excellent approach. Well done, TFS

I like this collection of summer photos. It is also very hot here. :-( Everyone in your photos is trying to stay cool, with umbrellas, hats, water, etc. I recognize the kanji for water, (mizu), in the top right photo. I have been in Tokyo two times during the summer, and I remember how hot and humid it was. Take care!

Nice combined the 4 photos on the same subject, most intriguing is the lady who ride the bike with an umbrella in hand.
the pigeon also beautifully eye catching object.
anyway I think summer's heat is better the winter's cold.
Havea nice week ahead,
