Photos: Black rain falls in Japanese city after lightning storm

Days after one of the fiercest lightning storms on record struck Tokyo a mysterious black rain has fallen in Japan.

The rain, which looked like thin black paint, was not found to be radioactive and the cause of the strange colouration is currently being investigated.

Black rain is a particularly shocking sight for older Japanese, who remember a similar dark rain falling in the wake of the atomic bomb blasts over Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945.

Japanese social media users shared photos of the bizarre phenomenon, with some saying it was “a little too scary” and “about as bad an omen as you can get these days.”
