Just to show you all abit of the Autumn's Fruits......in Japan....





When I first came to Japan,I mistook the chestnut trees as the rambutan trees,coz they look excatly like the rambutan trees.Even the leaves,looks the same,and the fruits when they are still green,looks like the rambutans when they are not ripe.

The chestnut will dried up and drop to the ground,just like the rubber seeds,so you can use your legs(with shoes on off course) to press it open to get the chestnut,coz once dried ,the skin of the chsetnut is very thorny.

Next is the photo of persimmons.It is taken in my family orchard.Persimmons are found in japan easily,grown just like our jambu (guava).They are also very cheap and tasty..

All these are autumn fruits.They will disappear from the market by the end of November as starting from Decemember will be counted as winter....
