It's early in winter at Oka-dera temple in Asuka Village. The three-storied pagoda, reconstructed in the Showa period, is now wrapped up in maple leaves. Bright sun rays clearly emphasize the redness of those leaves as the pagoda dims its vermilion color. And then, the sun goes down to dominate the sky as a gorgeous orange sunset. However, "Nothing is permanent." After sunset, when night fog covers the village, it's time for the moon.

*According to the 24 Solar Terms of Reiwa 3 (2021), Shousetsu is from November 22 to December 7.
