Autumn is the season of harvest. In Japan, this season means you can grab a variety of seasonable foods for relatively inexpensive prices at your local market. Don’t miss out!

So, today’s Japanese phrase is: “Imano shun wa nandesuka?” = What are the foods now in season?

Visit a local supermarket and ask clerks with this Japanese phrase, and they will kindly tell or show you the fruits or fish now in season.

Stay safe and enjoy autumn, the season of harvest!
