SHARE CAPTION ONLY: HOT TIMES AND WILTED WORKERS IN TOKYO

Japanese businessmen nap on benches at a park Thursday as a heat wave continues in the Tokyo metropolitan area. Hot air has been hovering near Japan for a week, drying out farms, killing tens of thousands of chickens and choking off running water. Wednesday, it gave Tokyo its hottest day in history - 102 degrees. Record heat was expected to envelop the country for at least another week, National Weather Agency officials said. The heat has caused water levels in reservoirs to reach dangerously low levels.
