<The north winds blow leaves from the trees>
In ancient Japan, people used 72 micro season calendar (72Ko) 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 November 27th is the 59th Ko
