No click weather.com!

This site is much more accurate. Weather.com has misled me several times.

According to this, it's only set to rain on Saturday. Keep checking though!

Headgear? I dunno? Visor? Just kidding. Don't you have a brown beanie? You could bring that. Also, there are a lot of spring hats for sale this time of year too, maybe you could buy one here!

Eayyyyaaaaaa! Gotta. get. moving. So difficult when it's croudy, er cloudy.

Weather knowledge is essential to a well-planned and enjoyable vacation. Schedules can be changed around to accomodate the weather, with heavy walking days bumped to days with lesser chances of rain. But Heather, the forecast has changed drastically in the three times I've checked the weather just today! Insane. Mid-day, the rainfall spiked and it looked like it was going to rain every single day, but now, as you can see, the forecast is very favorable with the worst being two 60% days! But who knows what will happen between now and then.

To that end....

1. I might go ahead and just pack my trenchcoat/raincoat, since it looks like it's going to be FREAKISHLY windy and rain will be blown under the umbrella. Argh.

2. Should I do anything in terms of headgear? What do Japanese people do to cover their heads when it rains? My current hairdo is not rain-friendly at all. I'm trimming away all fly-away bits because of the wind.
