August 23 in 2021
August 23rd (2021) is “Shosho (処暑)”, the 14th of 24 solar terms (節氣) in the traditional East Asian calendars.
“Shosho (処暑)” means the heat stops. It is the time around when the hottest season is over and Autumn is coming.
It is the season of bush clovers and grains. It is still very hot in the daytime, but you can get cooler air at night.
It is also the season of typhoons.
