Personally, autumn is the best season to visit Japan. High and clear sky, sunny days, moderate temperature, autumn leaves…. In Japanese, it has been said, “Autumn for arts,” “Autumn for sports” and “Autumn for foods” since old times.
So it is heavily raining, the winds are strong and some transportation is brought to a standstill.
I believe this will be the last typhoon of the year. October is quite late for a typhoon.
But if you unfortunately meet this typhoon, it’s too early to give up fine experiences in Japan.
Today is Jusanya, a full moon night (almost, actually) which has been celebrated like Jugoya.
By this evening, the typhoon leaves!
Jusanya is 18 September in the Lunar Calendar, the next full moon to Jugoya.
Full moon in autumn is bright and beautiful. Jusanya’s origin is not fixed clearly, but one explanation is that an emperor in the early 10th century praised the full moon so much at the moon-viewing party.
What will you do in autumn?
I have a lot of places to visit and I hope to share them with you on this blog!
