“Rikka” is the start of summer, so, from today, it is summer till “Risshu (立秋 / the start of autumn, August 8th this year) in the lunar calendar.

It’s summer on the calendar, however, the weather is very nice so it is a good season for outings.

This is the middle day between the Vernal Equinox Day and the summer solstice.
