You could say July in Japan is half the sunshine summer and half the rainy month. When it is fine, the sun light is strong and hot. When it rain, the air is frowsty. In any case, it must be very humid. In between the sun and the rain, for the rare occasion, dry wind blows over the city. The above picture was taken under such blue sky with strong light.
The second picture, bottom, was not taken in Japan but similar composition. Probably I like this kind of pictures.
