Plum Shower at XYZ Collective May 21–June 18, 2017

“There is a rainy season called ‘Tsuyu’ or 梅雨 (plum rain) it is said that the name Tsuyu derived from plums that are ripening at the same time of the year. The rainy season is also called as ‘Baiyu’ which literally means mold rain because it gets humid every day causing mold to grow fast. Furthermore, the rainy season is referred to as Baiyu (plum rain), Samidare (rain of the the fifth month), and Baku-u (wheat rain).”
