"I am the door" - Round of the Seasons

Mt. Fuji 100 km Far

Round of the Seasons

This evening Mt. Fuji could be well seen from around Tokyo.

It means the sky and the air now include less vapors and moisture.  One big natural feature of Japan is that its air includes wet more than in Europe and most parts of North America.  Especially in the spring and the summer Japan is humid.

In this regard, from June to September is the summer for Japan with the wet air, but from October to November is the autumn with the air including a reasonable level of moisture.  And from April to May is the warm spring getting wet, but from  December to March the air is dry almost all over Japan, though some northern areas have snow falling.

The summit day in the year for Japan is August 15, in the hottest week of the summer, when the Japanese people commemorate the end of WWII.  But traditionally and spiritually, the most important days for Japan are December 31 and January 1.

And, in October, the tenth month or the first double-digit numbered month, it has really started, in the Japanese society, to move toward the year end and the new year.

And miraculously the holiest day for the Christian world, December 25, is almost one week ahead of Japan's sacred days.

Anyway a season has changed in Japan.  Maybe the world might have.
