The Season of Winter

***** Location: Japan
***** Season: Winter
***** Category: Season



*****************************
Explanation

In the category SEASON, we have to consider the problems with the Asian lunar calendar and the changes to our modern times with respect to the names of months.
A lot of these expressions remind of the Chinese lore and legends of old.

In a worldwide context, we have to consider the differences of the Northern and Southern Hemisphere, see below.


. The Asian Lunar Calendar . . Reference

spring begins, February 4, risshun 立春
summer begins, May 6, rikka 立夏
autumn begins, August 8, risshuu 立秋
winter begins, November 7, rittoo 立冬


Early winter: 7 Nov – 6 Dec
Mid-winter: 7 Dec – 4 Jan
Late winter: 5 Jan – 3 Feb


. Names of old Japanese months
and the 24 solar sections ( nijuyon sekki 二十四節気 )
and the 72 seasonal points ( shichijuuni koo 七十二候 )


Winter is also a time when, according to the lunar calendar, the year comes to an end.
The 12th lunar month was the last of the old year, time for preparations of the the New Year.


WINTER, wintertime

fuyu 冬 (ふゆ) winter


gentoo 玄冬(げんとう)"winter emperor"
..... gentei 玄帝(げんてい)、genmei 玄冥 (げんめい)、tootei 冬帝(とうてい)、kokutei 黒帝(こくてい)"black emperor"
according the the theory of five elements of China
Read more about this interesting aspect of

Tootei 冬帝(とうてい)Winter Emperor

and
Utsutahime, Utsuta-Hime 宇津田姫 /打つ田姫(うつたひめ)




santoo 三冬(さんとう)three winter divisions"
three months of spring


kyuutoo 九冬(きゅうとう) "nine winter divisions"
the 90 days of winter

(according to the lunar calendar)

For the Southern Hemisphere, add six months.
