Heavy pressure: Typhoon Meari hit Tokyo over the weekend as the Japanese PM Kishida received a 4th vaccination, hinting at a broader programme of vaccination. And as one storm leaves, other enters. Amid resigning politicians, church scandals and psychic marketing, the Summer Sonic music festival readies its return with an international line up, only to then leave days later.

in Harajuku is a shop's worth of music, art, and fashion in Tokyo that has been around for far longer than any music festival, weather front, politician or pandemic.
