SHŪBUN (秋分)

September 23 in 2022

This year’s Autumn Equinox Day (Shūbun / 秋分) is September 23rd in 2021, the 16th of 24 solar terms (節氣) in the traditional East Asian calendars.

It is a national holiday.

Autumn Equinox Day is in the middle of “Higan“, so this is also the day to respect ancestors and remember people who died.
