Good News for Pollen Allergy Sufferers in Tsukuba

The Ministry of the Environment says that the diffusion of Japanese cedar and cypress pollen in Spring 2007 in the Kanto area is likely to be around 25% of a typical year. This is very good news for people who suffer from pollen allergies (花粉症, kafunshou). The amounts are different for different parts of Japan, but in general, it seems like the problem will be mild to normal this year in most places.
