【​24 Divisions of The Solar Year】
Nyubai (入梅)

 

This year, June 11 (Mon) is Nyubai.
Nyubai is one of the specific days for seasons other than the twenty-four divisions (24節季) of a year.

 

Plums (ume) turn yellow, and it tells you that the rainy season is coming.

 

(It is different from the actual start of the rainy season, and It is the day marking the start of the rainy season. The actual day of the start of the rainy season was around the 26th of May this year.)
