Rainy season finishes earliest ever in Kanto region as power crunch hits area

Quick Summary

The government has appealed to Tokyo residents to limit power use, with the unusually hot weather expected to boost demand for cooling.

The end of the season marks the earliest on record for Kanto-Koshin, and the second earliest for southern Kyushu and Tokai, the agency said.

As parts of the country see record high temperatures, leading to residents being asked to conserve energy to help protect power grids, Japan's Meteorological Agency said Monday that the rainy season has ended for the Kanto-Koshin, southern Kyushu and Tokai regions.
