Tsukiko is in her late 30s and living alone when one night she happens to meet one of her former high school teachers, 'Sensei', in a bar. He is at least thirty years her senior, retired and, she presumes, a widower. After this initial encounter, the pair continue to meet occasionally to share food and drink sake, and as the seasons pass - from spring cherry blossom to autumnal mushrooms - Tsukiko and Sensei come to develop a hesitant intimacy which tilts awkwardly and poignantly into love. Perfectly constructed, funny, and moving, Strange Weather in Tokyo is a tale of modern Japan and old-fashioned romance.

“Heartfelt and dreamlike ”

Since reading this I am in love with Hiromi Kawakami’s writing. This is such a sweet, delicate and touching book about a relationship between mismatched people. The plot is minimal but there is a dreamlike floatiness... More

“A Beautiful Read”

This was the first Kawakami book I’d read and thus I didn’t know what to expect. I was surprised by such a beautiful, fun, endearing and joyful read.
