    It was the hottest summer since I've been here, and I pray it's not going to be a trend. Give me a cold winter any day -- you can heat yourself up. But a hot summer, there's nothing you can do.

    "HAD" the worst summer? I assume that summer is still going. Today's high is 33, low of 26 with high humidity. Is that supposed to be autumn-type weather?

    I have been living here for 20 years and I have never witnessed a summer like this in Kyushu. Just to add, only 2 typhoons hit this whole summer. What's up with that? Usually we see at least 4 within a 20 day span. Granted, back home in Nebraska this summer in Japan is average for them.

    This is not the usual summer where you can go out and jump in and spend a day in water pond. Better stay indoor, cover your body with proper clothing when go out specially head, drink lots of water/ochha. While jumping in a pond people expose their body to SUN's Radiation and then suffer heatstroke. Well heatstroke is latly indroduced in Japan and many people are not aware about it. so be careful. Have a nice day !!!

    It is not the "hottest summer ever." The correct expression is "hottest summer on record." It is not possible to know the hottest summer ever.
