It was fine and warm.  Today is taisho (大暑), one of nijyushisekki (二十四節季) the 24 solar terms.  The last one was shosho (小暑) on July 7, and the next one is risshu (立秋) on August 7.  Taisho literally means big heat.  It is the hottest season in a year.  Actually the rainy season was over yesterday and it was very hot.  We need to take care of ourselves, especially necchusho (熱中症), heat injury. 
July 23 is known as fumi no hi (ふみの日), Day of Letter.  Every year commemorative stamps are issued on this day.
