It's august, and temperatures are stuck in the 35° range. Later this week the nightly low is predicted to top 30°. At least we haven't had any days close to 40 this year.

The cicadas — mostly Kumasemi - "bear cicada" around Osaka — are out in force, and the noise in parks and around trees is well nigh deafening (a related species sounds like this). And there seems to be a lot of them around this year; I even had this one fellow hitch a ride on my leg during a walk on Sunday:
