September 2018: The Minori no Aki Box

Thank you for subscribing to Kizuna Box!
Japan is the country of farming since long ago. Of course, the harvest season of autumn is the happiest season of the year.
In Japan, we will use various names about autumn. For example, “Shokuyoku no Aki” (season of appetite) , “Houjyou no Aki” (Autumn of fruitfulness), “Minori no Aki” (harvest season).
We are glad of the plenty of harvests. And we performed “harvest festival” in each place in autumn from old days. Depending on the region, they carried a portable shrine and celebrated the harvest.
