<72 micro-season calendar>
In ancient Japan, people used 72 micro-season calendar (72 Ko) which was made by dividing 12 seasons into 24 sub-seasons, and then splitting into three to give a total of 72 Ko, each lasting for about five days.
The calendar here marks the seasonal cycle of the natural world by allocating a series of evocative names to the different stages of the year, to illustrate the ever-changing beautiful landscape in Japan.
The 72Ko on September 3rd is the 42th Ko “Rice grows and ripens”.
It seems that fall has begun. Take good care of yourself when the seasons change.
