How to Spend the Summer in the Concrete Jungle: TOKYO | TRENDYJAPAN
The hot summer of Tokyo is coming this year as well. Already in the middle of the "rainy season". In addition, it is not easy to go out because infectious diseases are widespread all over the world. Tokyo has been issued a fourth "state of emergency" due to the infection. This month's blog feature was created so that Japanese fans around the world will be interested in "How to spend the heat in Tokyo". "Tokyo" where mutant virus infection is widespread. In consideration of the situation, as a general rule, we did not use public transportation, but limited to places within 1 hour on foot one way, and carefully selected. We hope that you will read it with great interest so that Japanese fans around the world can feel the "coolness of Tokyo".
Anyway, "comfort of indoor life" is the most important to survive the hot summer in Tokyo. So how do people in Tokyo lead a "comfortable indoor life"? I would like to introduce some of them.
1. Strengthening indoor and casual wear
What is the style of everyday wear in midsummer that is popular among young people in Tokyo these days? An increasing number of young people are going out for a mile, wearing "T-shirts" on the top, "flip-flops" on their shoes, and either "Samuel pants" or "Steteco" on the bottom. I also wear "colorful 3/4 length slim pants" for midsummer. As the stretch is also effective and the texture is the best, I am enjoying to wear the colors such as "blue" and "flashy yellow" are available as one-mile wear and indoor wear. At our select shop, we are focusing on this point and have a lineup of products that Japanese product lovers around the world can enjoy. Please check once on this site.
Note) Now it's available to accept purchase reservations for the products in this photo as "international shopping agency products" on our website. We have all kinds of other lineups to enjoy the summer, so please check our website.
2. Targeted "Cool-Down" Sweets and Fruits
Due to the spread of infectious diseases worldwide, many companies in Tokyo are "working from home". Tokyo seems to be entering a "new era of working style" as it is. While the number of people who have left Tokyo and moved to rural areas is increasing, the number of young people who are addicted to "home cooking" is also increasing recently. I am also addicted to "cooking", making what I ate when I was living abroad and baking sweets. Meanwhile, the number of young people posting videos of "summer sweets" is increasing. Ice cream using "Bulgaria Yogurt 1 bite cup" which is very popular in Japan. It's not a home cooking, but it's a video of "Gari-Gari-kun Soda Flavor" that you definitely want to eat on a hot day. Also, although it is my boom, I stock the vanilla flavor of Haagen-Dazs ice cream and sprinkle "passion fruit" or canned fruits to let the heat out of my body. "Azuki Cup Ice Cream" is very popular among my friends and family members. The perfect balance of condensed milk, red beans, and shaved ice is the best. Speaking of summer in Japan, "Shaved Ice," "Fireworks," "Goldfish," etc. We sell products that make you feel the traditional summer event at our select shop, so please check once.
Note) In summer Tokyo, it is an ice cream that you can fully enjoy the "coolness".
3. Moderate exercise is important to improve immunity. So, I would like to introduce you to the "Cool-Down Spots" in Tokyo.
As anyone who has lived in Tokyo for a long time knows the summer of Concrete Jungle Tokyo, the heat of summer is terrible. Therefore, Tokyo is currently focusing on "creating a park with forests". We would like to introduce some of the "cool spots in the 23 wards of Tokyo" that Tokyo people know.
a. Rinshi no Mori Park (Shinagawa Ward, Tokyo)
This is the park as known as developing by the Forestry Agency of the Ministry of Agriculture and Commerce in Japan at that time started as "Meguro Test Seedling Field" in June 1900, then changed the name to "Forestry Experiment Station", and became attached to be controlled by the Forestry Agency in Japan until 1978. With the construction of Tsukuba Science City, the relocated site was improved, and after a temporary opening period of "Meguro Park", it was reborn as "Tokyo Metropolitan Rinshi-no-Mori Park" and opened on June 1, 1989. It is a fairly large park in Tokyo, and it takes about 45 minutes to go around once. When I was a child, I often remember playing around at this park by bicycle with friends and family. Since it was a green test site, there are quite a few existing greens, and it is enough for your body temperature to be cooled down the place without a cooler. In the morning, many people are jogging or taking a walk, and our heads are refreshed, so it is a highly recommended "Tokyo cool spot". The breeding season for crows is from March to July, so please be careful about the threat of crows.
b. Gotenyama Garden (Shinagawa Ward, Tokyo)
This garden is located inside the "Tokyo Marriott Hotel" and is now a very popular spot as a "walking garden" that is deeply loved by the locals. A Japanese garden that conveys the old-fashioned remnants of Gotenyama, a famous place for cherry blossoms since the Edo period. On the spacious site of about 2000 tsubo, there is a tea room "Ujian" designed by architect Arata Isozaki, which is also the best spot to relax. When you enter the garden, the sensible temperature drops at once, making it a place where many animals and plants live. It's a place like "an oasis in the city". It's quite famous as a "Cool-Down Spot" in summer time. Also, it's famous as a "healing place", so it's recommended to refresh yourself or take a walk when you're tired. This area is a "quite quiet" and "safe place" as a residential area and consulate area of many countries, so please avoid talking loudly.
This time, we will feature a video of the famous "Gotenyama Garden" artificial waterfall. We hope this video will help Japanese enthusiasts "cool down" around the world. You can relax just by listening to the sound.
