4:22AM

The time the sun rises in Tokyo. For some unknown reason Japan does not believe in daylight savings time. In Japan’s semi-tropical climate, no black-out blind every made can stop that UV 14 sun.

I wake up very early every day. I guess there are worse things in the world than sitting on the deck and enjoying a cappuccino to this sunrise.

    I’m glad Japan doesn’t change the clocks every summer and winter! Daylight Savings Time is definitely something I don’t miss from America!

  2. The sun wakes me up every morning around this time. You’re definitely right about curtains not being able to block it out. I think Japan did try out daylight savings, but they quit after about four years because they thought it was bad for their health.

      • Really? Unless my alarm clock rings, I don’t get up no matter how bright it is outside.
        (But, as I said, even when my alarm does ring, it’s difficult to get up if it’s still dark out!)

        Another reason that I’m glad Japan doesn’t follow “Daylight Savings Time”…re-setting all of my clocks and watches twice a year would be a pain!
