How Japanese express the seasonal changes
in the scenery of a mountain

Spring 山笑う
Mountains smile
It's a season to get warm and every life wakes up.
Young leaves and flowers get gentle sunshine.
Summer 山滴り
Mountain dribble
Mountains are covered with mist in the morning
and clear water drip from the rock faces.
Autumn 山装う
Mountains dress up
Mountains are adorned with red and yellow leaves.
Winter 山眠る
Mountains sleep
Mountains are covered with deep snow. Even there is no snow, leaves were falling.
Mountains are in quietness as if they are sleepng.
