As parts of Tokyo witness record high temperatures, residents are being asked to conserve energy to help protect power grids. The Meteorological Agency said on Monday that the rainy season has ended for the Kanto-Koshin, southern Kyushu and Tokai regions.

“We ask the public to reduce energy consumption during the early evening hours when the reserve ratio falls,” Yoshihiko Isozaki, the deputy chief cabinet secretary, told the Guardian.
