The ancient Japanese calendar, combining the cycle of the moon with that of the sun, divides the year into 72 micro-seasons. Each of them reflects a natural event characteristic of the period in which it takes place: the migration of wild geese, the flowering of irises, or the appearance of autumnal mists. With names such as "ice melts in the spring breeze" or "fireflies soar from dead grass", these seasonal moments, which last only a few days, reflect the Japanese sensibility for the ephemeral, nature and everyday poetry. Discovering these 72 seasons means entering the heart of Japanese culture, understanding the festivals and celebrations that punctuate the year, as well as the seasonal references that abound in Japanese art. It is an invitation to find joy in the passing of the seasons and to appreciate the wonders of nature at every moment of the year. Zoé Jégu has a master's degree in Japanese language and culture, and is a certified specialist in Japanese seasons. She has been passionate about flora and fauna since childhood. Océane Bories is a French illustrator who lives in Tokyo.
