|There was a new jump tower that was finished just in time for this years bathing season.|
This year, the sea was unusually hot and people told me it was 19 degrees Celsius. This is very rare (though the lakes get much warmer, the sea rarely comes close to 20 degrees). I tried to point out that normal looking people like the man in the photo were swimming, so not "only crazy people", and that since my mother swam in the sea with me they were implying that she was crazy... but apparently Japanese people have some super power making them impervious to logic. So only me and my mother swam in the sea.
