Seasons

Japanese seasons bring out the best of Japan’s nature. All four seasons present fascinating views such as the momiji (Japanese maple trees showing off their vibrant colors of scarlet red) and sakura (flowering cherry trees and the petals fluttering in the breeze).
Seasonal events also occur every year: hanabi taikai (fireworks festival in the summer), hanami (picnics under the cherry blossom trees) and more. On top of the seasonal events that Japan holds, there is also seasonal food. Some of the seasonal foods in Japan include sukiyaki and oden in the fall and/or wintertime and kakigori (flavored shaved ice) in the summertime.
