I love how the kanji for water and ice are almost identical, the ice just has that extra little stick in the top left. Very easy to remember!
I have had a little difficulty finding rock solid sources for the microseasons and am essentially going from the list here, which seems legit…but I’m not certain. Hopefully it will be OK. Of course, anyone can just read the whole list, but the point of the microseasons subseries is that readers (and I) get a little injection of relevancy into our own calendars as the seasons pop up and the entry about the corresponding microseason appears.
Perhaps I should have posted this on a Wednesday rather than a Tuesday, since 水 is the Wednesday kanji. Oh well!
