On Friday 23rd September, we reach 2022's autumnal equinox: one of two days in the year when day and night are the same length.
In Japan, the changing of the seasons is traditionally a cause for celebration, with Autumnal Equinox Day (秋分の日 - shuubun no hi) being a public holiday on which people can enjoy some time off.
There are all sorts of traditions at this time of year, from お墓参り (o-haka mairi - visiting the graves of ancestors) to enjoying some tasty dishes, to my favourite: viewing beautiful 紅葉 (kōyō - autumn leaves)!
