If you go to stores like any convenience shops, department stores, 100 yen shops, DIY shops, Tokyu Hands, Loft, in this season, you will easily find a wide space of shelves selling various goods to avoid dehydration and prevent heat stroke.
“Ice Type Facial Paper”, “Cool Body Mist”, “Miracool (=miracle) Towel” Neck Cool Scarf” etc, etc… Some of them may be just no better than a placebo, but some are really working!
We have bike tours in this hot weather so our guides are carrying many items to protect our guests from the heat attack. Today, I’ll show you the contents of our guide bag just a bit 😉
My favorite “Cool Down” item is “Bubshower” (name of the item) of Kao (manufacturer’s name). The menthol is used in it and the heat of evaporation can make you feel cool down. Everyday’s shower time with this item is my pastime (of bath time :-p) after the tour.
… And of course, beer time after the bath time is the blissful moment!!
