24 seasons "Risshū (Beginning of autumn)"
August 8th (Tue) – 22nd (Tue)


“August Risshū

[ 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 calender marks the starts of autumn.
The intense heat continues on, but suddenly a morning or evening breeze comes, and I feel a faint hint of autumn.

At SUIGIAN, you can enjoy the changing nature with our dishes and cocktails.
Be sure to try them!
