72 Seasons

At this time of year the harsh heat of late summer continues, but mornings and evenings bring a welcome cool to the air. In the early morning, fog that rises deep in the forest or at the water’s edge creates mystical landscapes. Summer fogs are especially famous at Lake Mashu and Kushiro in Hokkaido, and around Karuizawa. Incidentally, fog is actually a seasonal word for autumn.
