Rainy season is called "梅雨" (tsuyu) in Japanese, which literally means "Plum Rain".
The reason why we call it “Plum Rain” is because plums are just ripening in this time of the year.
Now is the best plum picking season, and homemade umeshu (plum liquor), or umeboshi (pickled plum) have always been very popular in Japan since long ago. 🙂
Have you ever tasted Japanese umeshu or umeboshi?😊
Well, I love them both!😋💕
