Summer is season of watermelon in Japan. My son's grand mother gave his grandchildren this watermelon. My younger son was really happy to get watermelon. He loves watermelons. When we went to supermarket, he rally wanted it. But it was expensive yet. Younger watermelons are expensive. July is nice month to get watermelon in Japan.
By the way, summer is very hot and humid in Japan. Usually I suffer from the summer heat. And I can eat only cool and light foods which like watermelons and cold noodles.
I think there are several types of noodles in Japan.
