Boshu (芒種)

芒種 (Boshu)

June 6 (Thu)

 

 

Boushu is the 9th of 24 solar terms (24節氣) in the traditional East Asian calendars.
This is the day of seeding for rice, wheat, and other cereals. Nowadays, the seeding is earlier than this day.
In the countryside, you can see the view of rice seedlings lining up like the photo above.
It is the season that you can see the nice view of mountains reflected on the paddy fields.
