#247: Mosho-bi (Semiweekly-pedia of Japan)


#247: Mosho-bi (category: climate)


The term "mosho-bi" was invented in 2007 and has been widely used in Japan. The Japanese word "mosho" is "extremely hot" in English and "bi" is another pronunciation of "hi (meaning day)". So, "mosho-bi" literally means "extremely hot day".

It is defined as a day whose temperature exceeds 35 degrees Celsius. A day whose temperature is between 25 and 30 degrees is called "natsu-bi (meaning summer day)" and a day whose temperature is between 30 and 35 degrees is called "manatsu-bi (meaning midsummer day)".
