According to the calendar, it is already autumn. The scorching summer heatwaves are now going to end. In the rice fields of Asuka Village, rice plants are flowering, and the greenness of their leaves is dazzlingly bright. And tiny living things shine themselves also, such as grasshoppers, dragonflies, spiders and frogs. When the summer sky with columns of clouds is dyed orange, a cool breeze will blow from somewhere.

*According to the 24 Solar Terms of Reiwa 3 (2021), Shosho is from August 23 to September 7.
