 Spring has finally arrived at Azuma Mountain, and I will love this year’s cherry blossoms. Mt. Fuji was obscured by clouds and the Izu Peninsula was hazy, but the calm atmosphere created a quiet spring. I heard a the sound of Japanese nightingale for the first time this year.

 Summer is passing. This summer has been the hottest ever, but by the day the sounds of cicadas have become quieter and the one of insects in the grass louder. There is something melancholy about the sound of evening cicadas. The sky rises and autumn comes.

It is midsummer. I go to the beach at Chigasaki, can see blue sky and sea , white nyuudougumo over the Pacific Ocean. It’s the summer scene.

 Hamaori Festival is back after four years due to the coronavirus. Blessed with clear weather, the golden phoenix on the mikoshi stands out against the blue of the sky and sea. About 40 mikoshi from shrines in Chigasaki City and Samukawacho gather on the beach at Chigasaki Beach every year from the dawn of Sea Day and parade in the distinctive “Dokkoi-dokkoi” chant of the Soshu mikoshi. After arriving, the mikoshi enters the sea and performs a purification ceremony. A summer tradition in Chigasaki that tells of the coming of midsummer. See you next year.
