The Land of the Rising Sun is regarded as one of the most popular tourist destinations across the globe. Year in and year out, Japan welcomes hundreds of thousands of foreign tourists and travel enthusiasts during each of the four seasons in the country especially in spring and autumn. However, there is a noticeable decline in the number of travellers around Tokyo and other parts of Japan in summertime. This can be attributed to the hot and humid temperature characterizing the summer season. It starts in June and lasts until the middle of September.


Despite the scorching heat of the sun, summer in Japan is considered by both locals and foreign tourists as the most festive time of the year. The season is known for vibrant celebrations including the brightly colored Matsuri festival, mass folk dancing and other traditional festive occasions all over the country. It is also the best season to go mountain hiking at Mt. Fuji, enjoy the colorful sightseeing sceneries and appreciate the breathtaking coastal views.


In order to beat the heat and uncomfortable humidity in Japan during summer, numerous companies and establishments came up with creative ideas and innovations to keep the body temperature cool. One of the most remarkable products to watch out for this summertime is the Fanbrella. It was developed by the Japanese firm, Thanko. The fan and umbrella features of this summer essential aims to shade its users from the sun’s harmful UV rays and at the same time keep them cool through a built-in fan above the head.

Thanko has further improved the functions of the Fanbrella by adding an extra button to release a cooling mist which the users may activate when the temperature becomes unbearably hot. The fan and mist spraying features of the Fanbrella may be used for five hours with four Double A batteries.
