Rainy season, hydrangea season!
Hydrangeas coming into bloom bring a mixture of emotions. On one hand, their brilliant hues bring puffs of color to Japan's landscapes. On the other hand, however, these flowers tend to bloom around the rainy season - and their colors also signify that wet days are ahead!
On June 7, 2019 the Japan Meteorological Agency announced that the rainy season had officially arrived in the Kanto (greater Tokyo) area. On average years, this season ended around July 21.
Now it being rainy season does not mean it will rain every day, however there is an elevated probability of rain in the forecast. Check out the link below for what to expect and some easy ways you can prepare!
Volcanic alert level still elevated for Mount Hakone
From May 19, 2019, Japan's Meteorological Agency decided to raise the volcanic alert level for Mt. Hakone, to a level of 2 on a scale of 5. This decision comes after the number of volcanic earthquakes increased. It is advising that people not approach the crater.
To place this in context: the last time the alert status had been raised was in 2015, when the alert level was raised to 3, warning people not to approach a larger area around the volcano due to small eruptions. Prior to this, geological evidence suggests the mountain last erupted some 800 years ago.
Hakone Ropeway services have been suspended between Sounzan and Togendai stations and a temporary bus service is running instead. At present, services outside this area are unaffected and are running on regular schedules. If you are visiting the Hakone area, however, you may experience some transportation delays due to congestion. Note that the warnings currently are only for the Mount Hakone area and there are no warnings related to the Lake Ashi (Ashinoko) area.
For updated information on the Hakone Ropeway, refer to the official website at: www.hakoneropeway.co.jp.
