“Shokuyokuno Aki” (Autumn is the best season for eating.)
The expression of “Shokuyokuno Aki” is derived from the fact that people have an increased appetite in autumn when a lot of foods are in season such as chestnuts, sweet potatoes, pears, grapes and of course rice, a staple food of Japan.
The drop in seawater temperature makes seafoods (saury fish, salmon etc.) riper and more delicious.
A variety of fruits such as apples and persimmons are also harvested.
As Japan has four distinct seasons, you can enjoy its nice food culture.
