72 Seasons

As spring arrives, the air fills with water drops or a fine fog, and the distant mountains are often hidden behind a veil of mist. Clouds and smoke, too, seem to flow rather than rise straight up, all of which used to be referred to as "haze". In the "Saijiki" seasonal almanac, "fog" was used in the autumn, while "haze" referred to spring mists, and in the evening the word "oboro", meaning dim as well as mist, was used.
