Goodbye Snow 六月 Rokugatsu JUNE
Don't be fooled by the Japanese calendar, and don't forget your umbrella!
Traditionally called minazuki, "the month of water," June gets more rainfall than other months as the rainy season sets in and sweeps upward through Japan.
Minazuki (水無月, "Month of no Water"). "Mizu" (水) means water, "Nai" (無) means none, which normally means "absent" or "there is no", is here ateji, that is, used only for the sound "na". In this name the na is actually a possessive particle, so 'minazuki'means "month of water", not "month without water", and this is in reference to the flooding of the rice fields, which require large quantities of water. "tsuki" (月) means month. June is basically the rainy season, so why do we refer to it as "Minazuki"
Kawasaki Daishi Heikenji Temple Omamori
The omamori are Japanese amulets dedicated both to particular Shinto deities and to Buddhist icons. The Japanese word mamori means protection, while the honorific prefix o- gives the word a moving meaning towards the outside, thus going to mean "Your protection".
