Good morning from Tokyo. Hot, hot, hot, too hot!
Today, the Japanese Government has issued a Heatstroke Alert for the Tokyo Metropolitan area again. According to the forecast, today’s maximum temperature in Tokyo is 37 °C (98.6 °F), it’s almost body heat. In Saitama, Kumagaya and Maebashi in Gunma, it will expect to be 38 °C (100.4 °F). Wow.

About the infection cluster (outbreak) in a private high school in Shimane which I posted yesterday. It is pointed out on the social media that there were some fatal issues with the school’s guidance and management.
This morning’s music. I chose Brahms again. Today I took the great album of L’Archibudelli. They performe Brahms’ wonderful 2 String Sextets on this album. L’Archibudelli was an ensemble group founded by the great cellist Anner Bylsma (1934-2019). This Brahms album is stunning, it’s also my favorite.
