Autumn is the season when grain food such as rice and beans, fruits such as pears and grapes, and vegetables such as sweet potatoes are harvested, which is the season with the richest amount of food in the year. You can see freshly harvested, delicious and nutritious agricultural products at the store fronts. People hold festivals to celebrate the rich harvest, to show their gratitude towards the gods residing in nature, and to show gratitude for the efforts the others had made during the past whole year. When it becomes the foliage season in the end of autumn, the mountains all turn into beautiful red and yellow.
