When I think of a summer in Japan I think of many things. They have their own unique summer. I think of festivals and wearing a yukata. Fanning yourself from the humid heat with a traditional japanese fan and eating shaved ice or drinking ramune. Below I will go into detail about each unique thing.
This pig is not only cute but you can put incense in him called
かとりせんこう(katorisenkou) that are suppose to repeal mosquitoes. You can buy it at jbox.com
