momijigari

Few things delight me more than discovering a new word. My latest find is momijigari, a Japanese word that describes the pleasure of appreciating autumn leaves. As you can see from my photos, I have been indulging in some momijigari recently. What a soul soothing exercise. In the USA it is known as ‘leaf peeping’. Hmm… I think I prefer momijigari! Thank you Japan. And thank you Breathe magazine issue #14 for enlightening me! https://breathemagazine.com.au/
