In Japan, the late summer heat was very severe and in some places there're heavy rains - "cats and dogs" - this year, but we're becoming feeling some autumn air these days.


I'm going to tell you about "Nagatsuki", the synonym of September.

We call September "Nagatsuki (長月)" in the lunar calendar.

Each Kanji character means long(長), and moon or month(月).

In autumn, it will become quieter and longer than in summer, and the air will become more clear.

Besides, the moon will be seen the most clearly in this season.

"Nagatsuki (長月)" expresses the images of autumn nights in Japan.


We recommend watching this Furoshiki at such autumn night the best season for reading. These are very popular "Ukiyoe series".
