□ Japanese Seasons and Design of KIMONO. [1/3]

Japan has four seasons.

Of course, I know there are a lot of countries that have four seasons in the world.
But Japanese seasons have deep relation with kimono, and maybe it's a little unique.
So, I want to talk about Japanese seasons.

In Japan, there is temperatures fluctuate of 40 degrees in summer and winter, and the change of temperature maintains an even pace to gradual throughout a year.
Moreover, Japan is at east end of continental, is surrounded with sea, is very humid, and is affected by five air masses.

Flowers, plants, trees, food, animals, sky and air are rich in changing.
Japanese people in the old days have had and felt 6 or 24 seasons.
It can be guessed it is related to farming and sensibility of those days.

A lot of Japanese people are still feeling 6 seasons that are spring, rainy season (Tsuyu), summer, autumn rain (Shurin), autumn and winter.
And 24 seasons also are still living in calender.
