hot eggs in osaka



A few days ago temperatures in Japan hit record highs, while temperatures in air-conditioned trains and convenience stores hit record lows.

The oppressive humidity and scorching heat are causing tarmac to melt, rivers to dry up and oba-sans to catch fire. Even the camels in Namba have had enough...




The Japan Meteorological Agency has put the recent heatwave down to this:




But the burning sun is a boon to those without cooking utensils. Thanks to the intensity of the heat, it's now possible to fry eggs on bicycle seats. Yes, temperatures really are that high. A word of caution, though: be sure to remove the egg before going for a ride.

Wow, lucky I visited Kansai last month not this month. 40˚C is really hot. Here in Hong Kong the hottest day so far this year was 35˚C two weeks ago and it was already unbearable.

Cool blog, I'll be an Englishman in Tokyo for a fortnight in October. If I find a beer vending machine my life at last will be complete.

Hope I don't perish in a Godzilla attack first though :-(

I don't wanna eat an egg that was cooked on something on which someone's bottom was put.

Anyone have more bicycle seat recipes? Might be good for a quick snack on those long bike trips.
