#263: Momiji-gari (Semiweekly-pedia of Japan)


#263: Momiji-gari (category: activity)


The Japanese word "momiji" is "red leaves of maple trees" in English. "Koyo" (refer to #066) is another pronunciation of the kanji characters (refer to #017) of "momiji". In short, "momiji-gari" literally means "hunting for momiji".

Unlike budo-gari (refer to #261) and kinoko-gari (refer to #262), people are not actually gathering momiji but just appreciating them. It is an old-established Japanese custom and somewhat similar to hanami (refer to #002).
