It was raining in the morning, but stopped raining after lunch.
It was hot, but became cool at night.
The moon looked very beautiful.

My colleagues and I went out for lunch to celebrate a professor's recovery from eye surgery. 
There were 10 people. We were in the same small partation, but there were two tables for six and four.
There were only three lunch menus: one for grilled fish, the the other for daily lunch (sauteed pork and cabbage), and another was stewed cubes of pork called buta no kakuni (豚の角煮). I chose the last one. It was tasty.

Today is geshi (夏至), summer solstice, which is one of the nijyushisekki (二十四節気), 24 solar terms.  Last one was boshu (芒種) on June 5, and the next one is shosho (小暑) on July 7.
The day time is the longest today.
