Today’s 日本語

木漏れ日 komorebi

Sagano_Bamboo_forest,_Arashiyama,_Kyoto_ver.2

The most beautiful image  of Japan is majestic bamboo forests, moss covered stone lanterns, primordial glistening paths. the shoots swaying gently in a spring breeze the floor below dappled in beams of visible sunlight. A bird twitters, the bamboo creaks, a babbling stream you feel at one with the natural world, all at once timeless and infinite.

Japan, land of the incomprehensibly picturesque, of course has a word for just this occasion.

Komorebi – the scattered light through trees.
