Persimmons are a fall fruit in Japan. When I first came to Tokyo almost ten years ago, I had never seen one before. I didn’t even know what colour “persimmon” was.
My first trip home, I was surprised to see a whole display of them at my local grocery store.
But people back home don’t have the pleasure of watching them ripen from bright green to orange.
Of course, this photo is black-and-white…
