Cosmos grace this tokonoma

There is a special place in Japanese houses dedicated to displaying a seasonal treasure, such as a vase, a bonsai, or a scroll. This special place is called the “tokonoma”.

In this picture, a vase of cosmos grace the tokonoma, bringing the feeling of early autumn to the surroundings. Those that notice it feel the gradual shift in the seasons toward the end of the year, and feel gratitude that a fresh season is just around the corner after the heat of the summer.
