Whether it was due to global warming or not isn’t clear, but Tokyo enjoyed a pleasantly warm winter this year, which, for the millions of residents living in poorly insulated apartments, was very welcome indeed. In fact, so temperate were the temperatures, that the capital went entirely without snow – the first time this has happened for 131 years according to the Japan Meteorological Agency.
But those mild months could well mean that Japan needs to brace itself for an especially sultry summer, and with the mercury already rising, protection will be paramount. A topic that admittedly is not usually covered on Tokyo Times, but the recent discovery of a Japanese product called Anessa has prompted such a post.
Now whilst it’s supposed to be good for the skin and so on, much more importantly it offers perfect protection for young ladies who enjoy running along the beach in a bikini. An especially noble pastime it has to be said, but one that has sadly been neglected of late; however the arrival of Anessa will hopefully make it fashionable again – maybe even helping it gain entry into the Olympics at some point.
And what’s more, showering between bouts of bounciness on the beach is also ok.
Presumably meaning that despite even the most rigorous of rubbing, it thankfully won’t come off too quickly.
