When Autumn dyes the whole mountain with several shades of red, people not only see, but can feel the change of the new coming season.
Soon the temperature drops quickly and all animals and insects are getting ready for a tough winter.
On the way home from the mountains during the cooler Autumn days, people collect firewood, pick tree nuts and enjoy watching maple leaves and the other creatures celebrating the beautiful colours of the new season arrival.
The deep red of the Autumn leaves indicates fragility and the preciousness of life in Japan.
Welcoming the cold hard Winter, we used to entrust our heart and body with those momiji leaves, knowing that if we have faith, we will see the warm spring soon enough.
