Walking on Drift Ice
Each year, around October to November, most of Japan is dyed in various reddish shades, as the autumn season brings on the annual turning of the leaves. Trees throughout mountainous Japan are filled with beautiful colors. In Japan, the viewing of “Autumn Leaves” is a popular pastime.
The characters for the word, “Autumn Leaf viewing,” has an interesting origin. In the past, people would “hunt” for beautiful tree branches, “folding” them and appreciating them in the palm of the hand. Thus, the characters for “folding tree leaves” is used to express “Autumn Leaf viewing.”
