Rainy Season「梅雨」

Few people here have clothes dryers. This means that you just have to do the best you can even when it is the rainy season and the humidity is 1,000%... Here, our neighbors hang out the laundry and Mt. Hiei in the background just laughs at the futility.

I see your national sense of order extends even to hanging out clothes to air. A perfect arrangement and such a contrast to the shambles around me here.

When I see this kind of Japan everyday shot, I realize that it miss me so much....

Wonderful shapes in this composition. Agree with Ronnie about the orderliiness of it all. That bit of red, and the green on the other side, nicely balance the image. Around here, in Pennsylvania, USA, the Amish also hang their clothes on their porches when it rains or snows.

I like the idea of the laughing mount !!! and I admire too the perfect order of the laudry !( I have a cloth dryer ... but I used to hang the laundry inside the house in east of France for so many years before I had it and before I moved in the South ! )

Everything neat and clean ... the lines and the laundry. I like to see laundry in the fresh air, but the humidity definitely is a challenge!

I would hang it outside a while and then hang it inside a while. Eventually, it got dry. Ironing shirts dried them if they were still damp.
