Japan is one of the world's rainiest countries with a monsoon in June, fierce summer storms, and mellow autumn showers. Traditional homes evolved to cope with heavy rain and high humidity, using deep eaves, verandas, and rain screens. A culture developed that doesn't fight the rain, but keeps us dry enough to admire it. Architect Takeshi Hosaka explores designs that help us enjoy the rain.
