[ 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.
The time when the heat is greatest, the plants and trees become ever greener.
Looking towards the autumn's harvest in the fields, they are basking in the sun's blessings.
At SUIGIAN, you can enjoy the changing nature with our dishes and cocktails.
Be sure to try them!
