Mother's Day in Japan

Happy Mother's Day !



May 13th this year is Mother's Day.

The second Sunday in May are set Mother's Day In Japan.

Most popular present is flowers especially carnations on Mother's Day.

There were only red and pink carnations before.

 Nowadays, we can enjoy various kinds of carnations because of breeding.

Although Father's Day is set the third Sunday in June, that day is not so popular like Mother's Day.  There are no standard present such as carnations.


May is a good season to enjoy greenery in Japan. The early summer rainy season begins about the middle of June,

Japan has four seasons. The rainy season is between spring and summer.

However,  I feel that spring and fall are shorter and shorter, winter and summer are longer and longer every year. I think it might be because of global warming.
