Susiki, Japanese pampas grass, is very popular in Japan. The moon which you can see on the 15th is called “Chushu-no-meigetsu” which means “Mid-Autumn moon” and Susuki is decorated. In late autumn, many people visit to see Susuki. This is a traditional Japanese custom. However, in other countries, Susuki is seen as a mere weed.
Nara Park is definitely autumn. Near the evening, while the fallen leaves are pouring down, the male deer is sadly screaming wth searching for the female deer. When I hear that call, I feel more lonely.
The cosmos garden in the park near October 31 has ended. This is to prepare a field for spring. This year is still warm and the cosmos is nearly in full bloom. Unfortunately, it can’t be helped. But the buds of the rape blossoms have begun to swell in the adjacent field.
I took a rest at a tea shop near Nara Kasuga Grand Shrine. I ordered the Dengaku because it seems delicious. The Dengaku with miso was on a persimmon leaf. I had forgotten to eat the Dengaku for a while because the color of the persimmon leaf was so beautiful.
