March 6th (Mon) – 20th (Mon)


“March Keichitsu

[ The 24 seasons and 72 micro-seasons ]
Now four seasons are standard, but in ancient Japan the spring, summer, fall and winter were divided into 24 seasons, and each of those 24 seasons was further divided into 3 smaller seasons of 5 days each, called the 72 micro-seasons.
This helped people sense the changing seasons.

72 micro-seasons

Sugomori mushito o hiraku
(Hibernating insects surface)
March 6–10

Momo hajimete saku
(First peach blossoms)
March 11–15

Namushi chō to naru
(Caterpillars become butterflies)
March 16–20

It is about time for the insects that have taken shelter within the soil during winter, to become active once again.
"Chitsu" indicates the insects that have been hibernating.
