Korea has been raining for weeks. There are many places in Japan where water damage is severe. Last week's rain caused Seoul's Hangang Park to fall into the water, damaging several roads. It seems that commuting on weekdays took 2-3 times longer than usual.
It's a tough summer with water damage on top of the coronavirus.

Even though it's Saturday, the connecting passage for the conventional lines at Kyoto Station is rattled. I went to Osaka, but I can sit on the train and there are no tourists.

The city of Jasper, Alberta, located in the northern part of the Canadian Rockies, has made it mandatory to wear a mask on the same day as a new coronavirus infection prevention measure. It is mandatory not only in shops and indoors of public facilities, but also in places where the interpersonal distance cannot be kept more than 2 meters, such as downtown sidewalks and outdoor public spaces.

In addition, public transport Translink in Metro Vancouver, including Vancouver in British Columbia, will be required to wear a mask on all routes from August 24. It has been recommended so far, but the number of users has increased with the restart of economic activities, and it has become impossible to maintain interpersonal distance. It is also necessary to avoid troubles in a crowded car. We do not require children under 5 years of age, people with underlying illnesses or disabilities to wear a mask. Cards certifying that masks are exempted can be picked up at the Compass Customer Service Centers at Stadium Chinatown Station and Waterfront Station.

Normally, the booth at the entrance of the park pays the entrance fee to the attendant (ranger), but in order to reduce contact as much as possible, payment of the entrance fee is limited to vending machines near the booth. I heard that

In addition, in some parts of Arizona, it is now mandatory to wear masks outside and in public places to prevent the spread of infection, and the grounds of Grand Canyon National Park are also within that range.
However, maybe some people do not know the news, and according to the guide, about 60% of people were wearing masks for sightseeing.

Shugakuin Imperial Villa with 9 people today.
I heard that one person was absent. If you feel a little sick, you should cancel the participation.
But even if you feel sick, you'll want to participate, this Shugakuin Imperial Villa. I also applied three times, but the lottery has been missed even in Corona.
However, I was selected for my fourth application today! Finally
Slowly ask for guidance while wearing a mask, and then take your time off the mask to rehydrate.
All you can take photos. I'm worried about which one to choose, but the goodness doesn't get transmitted on a smartphone. The husband I was with was pleased to have taken a nice photo.
Please take the challenge to experience this magnificent landscape and garden! You can apply from the homepage of the Imperial Household Agency.
