夏 What makes a Japanese summer

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.
