24 seasons "Shosho (Manageable heat)"
August 23th (Wed) – September 7th (Thu)


“August September Shosho

[ 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.

"Shosho" means the end of the heat in Japanese.
Around this time, cool breezes blow in the morninngs and evenings while signs of autumn begin to fill air.
It also marks the start of the harvest season.

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