As I was a bit busy in November, I couldn't post . So let me put some expression of the early Autumn, Autumn after harvest and the late Autumn.
1 .稲淵（Inabuchi), the famous area for terraced paddy fields.
When I came here in spring, those fields had water after the rice planting . Many tadpole were harboring. And now I felt blessing to the rich harvest.
After reaping, they are hung to dry. Lately this scene is decreasing.
I heard the contest of scarecrow was held here before. Some scarecrow were remained. But if I come across them in the night, I am scared them.
A farmer are burning chaff or something over there. When I was child, I used to smell the chaff burning in the Autumn.
2. I came across a heavy growth of Water hyacinth in 橿原市（Kashihara city ）in early autumn. They were shining in the light of sunset. I heard they were planted by pupils of a elementary school.
3. Around 琵琶湖 （the Lake Biwa ）in the late Autumn.
Astringent persimmon were hung under the eaves. They will be sweet in the winter.
鶏足寺（keisokuji-temple)is at northeast of the lake Biwa. Plenty of fallen leaves turn the ground of this temple into a red carpet. Though usually here is so quiet temple, many people visit here during this season of colored leaves.
The garden of 彦根城（Hikone castle) in east side of the lake Biwa.
Would you like a cup of green tea under this parasol in this garden,watching colored leaves or the castle etc?
