Photo Journal: Sounds of summer

The Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA) announced on the same day that the rainy season was likely over in much of Honshu, two days earlier than in an average year. Meanwhile, the JMA put off declaring an end to the seasonal rains in northern Kyushu and Shikoku as unstable weather conditions persisted there. Also, rain is expected throughout the week in Honshu's Hokuriku and Tohoku regions. (Mainichi)
