About the 72 season calendar

Japan has four beautiful seasons; spring, summer, autumn and winter. The rich, unique expression of each season is reflected in our everyday lives, and the Japanese have long placed a special importance on seasonal changes.
The origins of that are the ancient 24 and 72 season calendars. First, the 24 season calendar takes the path of the sun as seen from earth and divides the 360 degree path into 15 degree segments, to make 24 seasons, each lasting around 15 days. From there, each of the 24 seasons is further divided into three more, to give 72 unique mini-seasons. Each lasting just five days or so, their names reflect the subtle changes in the natural world that can be seen at that time, such as “Spring Winds Thaw the Ice” and “The First Peach Blossoms”.
