The summer will be over soon. Today I heard the sound of bell-ringing when it was dark. Every day, the sound of cicadas had been noisy, but the sound of bell-ringing like informed coming autumn and it was cool sound.

After dark, when I looked up the sky, there was a moon. I felt really refined tastes.

But it is said only Japanse feels the sound of insects as refined tastes. Foreigner can’t tell the sound of bell-ringing from the sound of cicadas. They feel both are same noises.

It is an interesting story.
夏も終わりに近づいてきた。今日、夜になると、鈴虫の声が聞こえた。毎日、蝉の鳴き声がうるさくて仕方なかったけども、鈴虫の声は秋が近ずいてきたようで涼やかだった。

暗くなって空を見上げると月が出ていた。なんとも風流だと感じた。

けれども、虫の声を風流に感じるのは日本人だけらしい。外国人は、蝉の声と鈴虫の声を聞き分けられない。どちらも同じ雑音のように聞こえるといいます。

面白いですね。
