That's why I've developed my own strategies to "survive" summer in Japan, like enjoying lots of summerly snacks and seeking refuge in air-conditioned shops, whenever it gets too hot outside.
Needless to say, drug store visits rank high - one has to stock on anti-frizz hair products, sunscreen and waterproof make up, right?
