Japanese proverbs about “rain”

June has been coming!
In Japan, June from the lunar calendar is called『水無月(みなづき)』 "Minazuki" and it is now used as another name for June.

There are various stories about the origin of "Minazuki".
One is that "無" does not mean "nothing", but the adnominal particle that corresponds to "no", which means "the moon of water". It is interpreted that June of the lunar calendar, which is the end of the rainy season, was called "Minazuki" because it was the time to supply water to the rice fields.

The other is the opposite meaning, the theory that it is "minazuki" because there is no water.
There is a theory that there is no other water because it draws water in the rice fields, and there is a theory that there is no water because the water dries up due to the heat.

There are many interpretations and it's interesting!

By the way, all over Japan except Hokkaido is in the rainy season in June, and rainy days continue until July.
