It is found that daily maximum precipitation is higher in monsoon region over the Indian Ocean and the western Pacific. Especially in the western Noorth Pacific, including the southern coastal region of Japan, it exceeds 300 mm in a broad extent. This region seems to be the world's heaviest rainfall region on a daily time scale when viewed from a macroscopic disribution. The second heaviest region is in the western part of the tropical South Indian Ocean
