Summer is over and we are into Autumn. Autumn, or Fall, is definitely my favorite season. The weather is cooler, the outdoors smells so good, and I can finally stop sweating all day long!
The first Japanese song I learned in my language school was
Here is an English translation:
The person who loves the spring
is surely someone with a pure heart
just like a violet.
You are my precious friend.
The person who loves the summer
is surely someone with a strong heart
just like the waves breaking rocks.
You are my dear father.
The person who loves the Fall
is surely someone with a deep heart
just like the poet Heins.
You are my lover.
The person who loves the winter
is surely someone with a wide heart
just like the thawing of the snow.
you are my dear mother.
Fall is so beautiful in Akita. I hope you are enjoying this season.This year I plan to go to three of my favorite fall spots.
and a little park whose name I don’t know.
I hope you can take time to enjoy the beautiful scenery in Akita.
