Shichijyunikou (Seventy-two Seasons)
In our busy everyday life, have we overlooked the precious changes of the seasons? What we propose here is a daily pad calendar that allows you to feel the season more delicately with colors and scents.

There is a system called "Shichijyunikou (Seventy-two Seasons)" that was devised in China to represent the seasons. “Nijyushisekki (Twenty-four Seasons)” is further divided into three groups of five days each. In the Edo period, it was revised as “Honcho Shichijyunikou'' to suit the climate of Japan, and is still used in Japan today.

We tend to treat the seasons roughly like four seasons. According to “Shichijyunikou”, you will be reminded that the seasons change every five days, and you will be able to feel the changes of the seasons more delicately than ever before.

In addition, since the daily pad calendar was first manufactured in Osaka in 1903, it was common for every family to have one in the old days. And we would often have skirmishes over which member of the family would turn over it. Daily flipping is also an act of refreshing each day by tearing off and throwing away the old dates. It also symbolically represents the Japanese culture that always accepts change.

"Shichijyunikou" is made up of 72 colors of traditional Japanese washi paper that match the seasonal traditions, and the same color washi paper continues for five days. The Japanese paper is embossed to casually show the daily date and traditions. In addition, by adding incense ingredients to Japanese paper, old dates that are torn off and discarded can be rolled up and burned to enjoy as incense. This incense contains different scents that match the seventy-two seasons, which leads to a greater awareness of them.

" Shichijyunikou" is sure to create a beautiful start to each new day with its different colors and scents.
