Have you noticed a shift to cooler weather in your area?
In Japan, this time of year marks the start of autumn, and the mild temperatures are perfect for outdoor activities. In addition to Sports Day, a public holiday held annually on the second Monday in October, many schools also host their sports festivals around this time. Relay races, dancing, and tug of war all make an appearance at the event.
In the USA, sports fans can also enjoy an eventful month. The MLB World Series playoffs begin, American football games are in full swing, and the NBA and NHL seasons start in October.
Whether an avid athlete or casual observer, we hope you enjoy the sport of your choice this Fall.
