Today is the first day of the 24 seasons, “Taisetsu”.
That’s a word that reminds me of winter!
Ritto => Shosetsu => Taisetsu => Geshi => Shokan => Taikan
The next 24 seasons will be “Toji” on December 22.
It’s time for snow to start falling in earnest.
This is the time of year when there is snowfall not only in the mountains, but also in the plains.
This is the season of snowfall in the plains as well as in the mountains.
■ 72 micro-seasons (七十二候 Shichijuniko)
The calendar that divides the 24 seasons into three is called the 72 micro-seasons.
It is a calendar that expresses the fine changes of the seasons
It is a calendar that expresses detailed seasonal changes in short words.
From today to the day before Geshi is the period of Taisetsu.
・初候(Shoko) Around 7~11 days
When the chi of heaven and earth is blocked and it is the middle of winter.
・次候(Jiko) Around 12~15 days
When bears go into hibernation.

When the salmon are swarming up the river.
I’m in a hurry to get things done.
Every year, I think, “This is the year I’m going to get things done
As long as you are well
That’s the best❗️.
