Ohigan in September

There is a thing called “Ohigan” (The equinoctial week) in the Buddhism in September, and hold a memorial service for ancestors. People visit to graves and eat the rice cake covered with bean jam.
It is said that “Extreme temperatures lasts only until the equinox” in Japan, the midsummer fever is getting better around the days of the equinoctial week. As a dragonfly flies, and a bell cricket chirps at night, Autumn gradually approaches.
Family often gathers on the equinoctial week and they visit graves and eat together. The relatives that live far-off visit, too.
