{Shunbun no hi} Day for praising nature and showing love of all living things.

It falls during the week of the autumnal equinox like Shunbun no hi in spring, and it's the day when night and day are almost equally long.
* Higan (two periods of seven days with the middle day falling on the spring or autumn equinox); the word higan meaning "the other shore," or, in Buddhism, nirvana.
