From the Tokushima Newspaper earlier today:
November 7 marks the beginning of winter as recorded in the traditional 24 seasonal datum points in the year. A cold shift is expected over the coming weeks, although rain in Tokushima since yesterday has led to warmer temperatures than generally expected for this time of year. Instead, current temperatures have been closer to weather expected in late September and early October.
Meanwhile, in Tokushima Central Park, gold and red leaves are beginning to gather on the ground, and Winter is on the way.
