It is June.









In archaic Japanese、 June is said“Minazuki”(水無月).
Direct meaning of the Kanji-character is “the month without water.”
But this explanation is a mistake. Also in old Japanese , “Minazuki” means the month of water and this seems to be true. On lunar calendar, June is the season to fill paddy field with water and Minazuki comes from this fact.

And on solar calendar we use generally, we will soon be in rainy season here.
