Daikan (大寒)

The traditional Japanese calendars divide a year into 24 solar terms.
Daikan (大寒) is the Japanese word for solar term, the coldest part of the year.
In the Gregorian calendar, it usually begins around 20 January and ends around 4 February.
It’s the day of the year that the cold is most severe, but you could also say that Spring is just coming around the corner.

Winter is the perfect time for hot pot, Sukiyaki.
