Rush Hours in Tokyo Could Make One's Head Blomber!
Tokyo Says, Come Back, But Don't Say Sayonara!
Is the last word in the first headline "Rush Hours in Tokyo Could Make One's Head Blomber!" strange word? Well, there's nothing strange in the world of wording and in the Japanese capital as well. However, this is my own word I use as a verb for the adjective word "blowzy". If you liked it, vote for it. If you didn't, vote for it anyway.
In spite of that the de facto capital city of Japan is so crowded and could make your head blowzy, the beautiful metropolis in Japan says, come back and do not say "Sayonara".
The following article is about this beautiful and crowded great metropolis in Japan and the heat waves caused by the global climate change.

Since Japan is one of the great industrial areas and one of the great economies in the world, so its capital Tokyo is one of the world's great metropolises.
For millions of Japanese, the backdrop to their everyday life consists of glass skyscrapers, crowded streets, surrounded by colourful banners, neon signs and large television screens that transmit music videos and blast commercials 24 hours a day.
There live about 8.6 million people in central Tokyo. Every weekday, 2.5 million commuters hastening from the suburbs to work and school in the city increase that number. The subway and one of the busiest and most efficient commuter rail networks in the world ensure that people reach their destinations on time.
The breathtaking metropolis Tokyo provides a break every spring when thousands of cherry trees bloom. Japanese companies close down at midday for half day to have Hanami-fests, picnics under the blanket of snow-white and pink cherry blossoms.
The startling and unique beauty of the flower lasts less than two weeks, and it dies when it is very beautiful in its prime. Cherry flower blossom reminds the Japanese of the transience of life and beauty volatility.
With global warming changing life nowadays rapidly, the capital city of Japan suffers from a phenomenon known as "urban heat" or "heat islands", which is characteristic of the mega cities where artificial heat from cars exhausts and factories release create a local greenhouse effect.
Over the past 100 years, the temperature in the capital city of Japan rose five times as fast as global warming.
A century ago, Tokyo experienced a maximum of five tropical nights in a year. Today the figure stands at 40, while temperatures on winter nights rarely fall below 0º C. The leaves start now to change colours in mid-December instead of late November, and each year, cherry trees start to bloom earlier.
With the projected global temperature increases, the heat in big cities like Tokyo will continue to increase and make it even hotter. This will lead to a significant increase in the number of people suffering from heat stroke and respiratory disease, and will change both the seasons and people's lifestyles.
