Japan Battles Rare Rainy Season Heatwave, Six Dead from Heatstroke

Japan is facing a rare and dangerous heatwave during its rainy season, with temperatures soaring to record highs and causing six deaths from heatstroke in Tokyo alone. The central Shizuoka region became the first in Japan to see the mercury reach 40 degrees Celsius this year, far exceeding the 35-degree threshold classified as "extremely hot."

This severe heat is attributed to a strong South Pacific high-pressure system, making it "rather rare" for the middle of Japan's rainy season, according to a weather agency official. Temperatures also hit record highs near 40 degrees Celsius on Monday in Tokyo and the southern Wakayama region.

Authorities have issued heatstroke alerts across much of the country, urging residents to avoid exercising outside and to use air conditioning. The heatwave poses a significant health risk, and residents are advised to take precautions to stay cool and hydrated.
