Why “Rain”? Rain, in Japanese is “雨” which is pronouned as “ame” [ah-may]. It is considered the most appropriate word to represent the Japanese culture, as it is also a trait of the Japanese Arts and Letters as a subject of imagery and poetry.

 

Japan is surrounded by beautiful nature and Japanese have a lot of unique words to express nature, and among them, many are about rain, so much so that there are more than 400 ways to describe rain! From the Japanese standpoint, if nature were deprived of the environmental changes in weather, it would be considered abnormal and unnatural. Unlike the North American culture, where rain is portrayed with a negative connotation, in Japan where it rains frequently, it is signified as an enhancing effect on the scenery and provides a dynamic process because it is immersed in its own seasonal and climatic features.

 

In Japan, when the rain season comes by, native people would enjoy a cup of hot tea with some exquisite desserts, sit under the eaves of their garden, while listening to the sound of nature – the sound of the rain falling on the stones and plants. In the most natural form, this is how Japanese people relieve stress, make their mind clear, and their life peaceful.
