Snow-capped Mount Fuji and a rainbow greet the era of the new emperor

Tokyo (AsiaNews / Agencies) - The announcement of the new Reiwa era inaugurated yesterday with the enthronement of Emperor Naruhito was greeted by two natural coincidences: a great rainbow over the capital, for days covered in rain, and the arrival of snow on Mount Fuji, which this year was late for the winter season. The Japanese media talk about these "signs" of nature as something good for the new era.

The Japanese religiosity linked to Shintoism, sees divinity in every aspect of nature and especially in the wonderful events from the aesthetic point of view.
