<Dark, winter clouds are all over the sky>
The 72Ko on December 10th is the 61st Ko “Dark, winter clouds are all over the sky.”
Even the clouds became grayish, the bright gold of the ginkgo trees at the shrine near to our factory are beautifully coloring the winter sky.
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.
To cherish each moment in the changing seasons, Mokumeganeya will introduce the beautiful flowers and events in each season. Please enjoy the change of season with us.
