It looks like people who work for newspapers and news agencies feel the same.
If they can take a good photo of a rainbow in Tokyo, they feature it as one of the headline news on a major paper.

For the people who are always following the latest depressing news, an image of a beautiful rainbow is just as meaningful as some political issues.
I saw this rainbow pinwheel on a busy street late at night in Tokyo. I just had to stop and take a photo, as it was so lovely.
(I remember it was in front of a Korean restaurant, too bad I wasn't hungry then)
Do you think if the science develops more in the future, and the weather forecast will can us "we can see a rainbow tomorrow afternoon"?
I am hoping;-)
