After moving to Japan, we noticed fairly quickly the availability of certain foods and products only in the right season. Want to buy a fan in the winter? Sorry! Have to wait until the appropriate season. Is it an unseasonably warm spring day? Be prepared to get some looks like you are a crazy person if you wear anything other than long sleeve shirts, a sweater, and pants. Do you want to by strawberries in October or tomatoes in December? Not every store will carry them, and if they do you will pay and arm and a leg.
|In late spring, I am always happy to eat boiled soramame|
|Summer is the perfect time to eat a delicious meal of cold noodles like somen|
|Would winter be winter without eating mikan every day?|
|Nabe. In winter we revel in it and every other season we|
remember it fondly.
