Insects Awakening (Keichitsu) / The 24 Solar Terms

The Seasons of Yamato

5m 00s
Broadcast on March 10, 2022 Available until March 31, 2037

A carpet of canola flowers tells the Yamanobe-no-Michi Road that spring has come. The warm weather tempts tree frogs to come out and ladybugs to play with horsetails. Spring light fills up the field as if to compete with the yellow of the canola flowers. As the sun sets, the yellow of the flowers slowly grows darker until they become black silhouettes. But please do not worry about it. Tomorrow should be warmer than today!

*According to the 24 Solar Terms of Reiwa 4 (2022), Keichitsu is from March 5 to 21.
