It started raining last night as I ate my pot noodle and it has only briefly paused since then. Sometimes it was so feeble that I put my umbrella away. I just trudged north until I reached the start of the Shimokita Peninsula, the northern area of Honshu that looks like an old axe, and checked into yet another business hotel. At ¥5000 per night I don’t want to do this often. Unfortunately the forecast is for several days of rain, and I hate camping in the rain.

Farther to the north, a strong low pressure system will move gradually northward along the northeast coast of Honshu. This storm is strong enough to produce significant rain and gusty winds through northern Honshu. Precipitation will move into Hokkaido in the evening and into Tuesday.

Luckily someone around here has unprotected internet so I’ve downloaded a few podcasts to entertain me and even signed up to Twitter. Whether you are a member or not you can get updates as soon as I do something interesting (and get to internet access).

Word of the day: ka-do = corner
