Finally, we are enjoying this fall weather.... it's been hot unusually.    In September, it was like August, early last week, it was like September...
I'm still wearing short sleeves.

It's such a pleasant weather today..... I can feel dopamine is secreting from my brain....nice day!

Unfortunately,  few cafes or restaurants are providing Wi-Fi in Japan, though gradually some are starting equipped with it.  

Here, I don't have to bring my cable, router etc.
