As the old saying goes “hot and cold is only until Higan”, and after the buddhist ceremony at the autumn equinox, the late summer heat dies down into cooler, early autumn days. The sky too changes its complexion, huge thunder clouds giving way to fluffy cirrocumulus, and the thunder gods that have been active through the summer now settle down for a long rest. But soon, on the coast of the Japan Sea, the snow thunder gods will get to work, bringing with them Jack Frost, and winter.
