осенняя Япония/ autumn in Japan

Autumn Seasonal Fruit ~Kaki (柿)~

Japanese persimmon also known as “Kaki” is one of the famous fruits during fall in Japan. Kaki contains a lot of vitamin C, fiber, mineral, amino acid and so on. It’s very reasonable and can be found in grocery stores! If you are visiting Japan during fall, it would be great to try unique local fruits!

In Kinchakuda, Hidaka city, Saitama pref., there are about 5 million Higanbana and it's like a red carpet! From Sep 21st to Oct 6th, "Manjushage (Higanbana) Festival" will be held and street stalls sell special product of Hidaka.
