Four Seasons in Japan

  • Four Seasons in Japan


    Some Japanese people say “Japan has four seasons,” but foreign people who heard that would be confused.

    Of course, there are four seasons in many countries all over the world.

    Then why some Japanese people believe that the four seasons are unique to Japan?

    I think that this is because Japanese people have divided a year into every three months equally and distinctly, assigned four seasons there, and cherished traditional events of each season.

    In fact, most traditional events in Japan are based on/deeply related to one of four seasons.

    Therefore, I think that we should say “Japan cherishes traditional seasonal events,” rather than “Japan has four seasons.”
