The autumn shape with "Crimson" Japanese calligraphy




あしひきの 山の黄葉 今夜もか  浮かび行くらむ 山川の瀬に
大伴書持 (? - 746)  万葉集

Autumn mountain fallen leaves tonight,too  went floating shallows of river
Ōtomo no Fumimochi (? - 746)  Man'yōshū







秋風の 吹きにし日より 音羽山  みねの梢も 色づきにけり
紀 貫之 (866 - 945)  古今和歌集

Autumn breeze from blewing day Otowa mountain  treetop of the peak turns red
Ki no Tsurayuki (866 - 945)  Kokin Wakashū







神な月 風に紅葉の 散る時は  そこはかとなく 物ぞ悲しき
藤原高光 (939 - 994)  新古今和歌集

comes to november autumn leaves fall in the wind vaguely sad atmosphere 
Fujiwara no Takamitsu (939 - 994)  Shin Kokin Wakashū







   "紅" (kō, kurenai). It is translated as deep red, crimson.
 This character is written by Kanzi, Semi-cursive_script.

   Etymology : Phono-semantic compound
  紅 ⇒ 糸 (thread) + 工 (work)

The molding of the Nature is very delicate. And splendid.







Kyoto is a very famous ancient city. Landmark architectures. Elegant nature. 
It is the symbolic town of Japan.

In every season, the expression is the traditional beauty.

  31. How beautiful to see this, dear Ruma, after my hot six months in Mumbai. I even posted the video on Facebook. I head home in one week. Can't wait to see my little granddaughter who will be almost eight months old when I see her...she was six weeks old when I left.

    Japan is so spectacular anytime of the year. My love to you, dear friend whom I have never seen.
