(November, 2018)

November might not have much of appeal. October has Halloween and December has Christmas and year-end parties. There are, however, beautiful autumn leaves, ‘Shichi-Go-San’ and ‘Pocky Day’ in November.
‘Shichi-Go-San, 753’ is the day when we celebrate three-year-old and seven -year-old girls and five-year-old boys. It is originally the 15th of November when people visit shrines for ‘Shichi-Go-San’. Since it is quite congested in the shrines around the 15th, many families visit before or after the busy period these days.
A Japanese confectionary manufacturer, Ezaki Glico has been selling chocolate covered stick biscuits, ‘Pocky’, since 1966. Its figure resembles to the number ‘1’, November 11th, 11/11, is called’ Pocky Day’.
On the 3rd Thursday of November, Beaujolais nouveau is released in France. Japanese fans also long for its same day release in Japan.

October, 2018

It is getting nice and cool in October. Colors of leaves start to change in some places.

People spend their time in many ways. Some think eating seasonal harvest is the best, some enjoy reading books. It is also the best season for sports and art. How are you planning to spend your fall?

We have old Japanese names for 12 months. October’s old name is ‘Kan-na-dsuki’. ‘Kan’ is gods and ‘na’ is no. All gods gather in Izumo in the tenth month and all the other regions are without gods, no god, Kan-na. On the other hand, Izumo region is full of gods in this month and the month’s name is ‘Kami-ari-dsuki’, god-existing month.

 日本では秋の味覚を代表するものに「さんま」があります。漢字にも秋がついていて『秋刀魚』・・秋の刀のような形をした魚、と書きます。9月中旬から10月上旬の北太平洋 三陸沖を通る時期の秋刀魚が、とても油がのっていて美味しいです。さんまに含まれるEPA(エイコサペタンエン酸)とDHA(ドコサヘキサエン酸)には、血液をサラサラにする成分や脳細胞の成長を促し脳を活性化する働きがあります。新鮮な秋刀魚は、下あごの口角がほんのり黄色くなっています。おおよそ水揚げから3日程度すぎると茶色く変わってきます。
