Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
What if the Ukraine is swung round by about 160 degrees clockwise?  Not good news for Tokyo. All down to the direction the wind blows

Very true, but the maps gives us an idea of just how small and densely populated Japan is.

The wind direction is rather fitting so far, and for what I heard, that seasonal wind direction will hold for another month or two.

Well the BBCs Tokyo Weather forecast is for the wind to blow towards the east On Sunday, with light rain, then strengthening and swinging south on Monday.

About one day in ten thousands it blows from Ukraine to Sweden. Just happened to be one of those in april 1986.

So even though it is likely that the seasonal patterns hold, you may not want to gamble something important on it.
