The chrysanthemum—kiku in Japanese— is the most celebrated of all Japanese fall-flowering plants. Meticulously trained kiku will be on view in the Nolen Greenhouse’s Bourke-Sullivan Display House. (Excerpt from NYBG's homepage)

日本の菊(きく)は、本当に美しいです。NYにいる方はお見逃し(お・みのが・し)なく!Japanese Kiku is truly beautiful.  Don't miss the exhibit if you will be in NY area.

Japanese Ghosts/日本のお化け(Nihon no Obake), Monsters/妖怪(Yohkai)

Happy Halloween!

It's been for a while since Japanese people have adapted Halloween.  However the Japanese traditional "Ghost Story Season" is hot summer.  Why?  Imagine the old time they didn't have エアコン(eakon=a/c), not even 扇風機(senpuuki=electric fan).  Got the idea?
