Japan's Autumnal Equinox: 秋分の日 (shuubun no hi)

Online (Zoom) | Pay-As-You-Feel Event

Wed 21st Sept | 18:00-19:00 (BST)

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)!

What will we do at this event?

At this event, join me and other Japanese learners to find out more about:

  • The history, traditions and culture of 秋分の日 (shuubun no hi)
  • Popular seasonal foods
  • Life in Japan as the weather gets colder
  • Sightseeing spots for autumn leaves
  • Handy words and phrases for autumn in Japan

The event will follow a relaxed format with plenty of chances for Q&A (verbally or in the Zoom chat).
