The CLTP3 participants is now developing their own CanSat.
They are doing a fine work, and will be good space-education leaders in their countries after CLTP3, I believe!
Dear CLTP3 Participants,
We’re now counting the days before starting the CLTP3, we’re all very happy to welcome you to coming to Japan!
Our students are going to greet you at the Narita airport, just after the customs, having a welcome board of your name and the name of TMU written so that you can easily find us.
Now is nearing an end of Japanese rainy season and a start of Summer, and we hope all of you will have good days in Japan and through the CLTP3!!
From June to the middle of July is the rainy season in Japan, called ‘Tsuyu’ or ‘Baiu’ written as ‘梅雨’ in kanji character.
The Baiu is gentle rain and falls almost everyday.
We Japanese named all kinds of rains in hundreds of names according to the characteristics of the rain as Kirisame, Konukaame, Kosame, Shigure, Niwakaame, Murasame, Namidaame, Tenkiame, Nagasame, or the season as Harusame, Natanedzuyu, Samidare, Bakuu, Akisame, Kannoame, Hisame, Kan’u, Zuiu, and so on.
Baiu or Tsuyu is one of them.
This rainy season is caused by the Okhotsk Sea air mass and the Ogasawara air mass struggling with each other to form a rain front for a month over Japan.
At the end of the season, powerful lightning heralds the arrival of summer to us.
Then, Summer will come, and CLTP3 too!
