October 14th, 2012 · No Comments

Now the middle of fall season and most of the deciduous trees and shrubs have just started to turn their foliage colors from summer colors to fall colors. So this time I want to mention about maple.

Generally we call maples as "紅葉(もみじ - momiji)" or "楓(かえで - kaede)" in Japan. But the Kanji word "紅葉" originally means red leaves or foliage ("紅" means red and "葉" means leaf), so the word of "紅葉" is originally used for indicating all the deciduous plants that turn their foliage color from their summer colors to red fall color.

And we use the word "楓(ふう – fuu orかえで - kaede)" for indicating only the group trees or shrubs of maples. And sometime we use the word "楓樹(ふうじゅ - fuuju)" just for maple tree.

In Japan both of the word "紅葉" and "楓" are often used as girls’ names not only as Kanji names but also as Hiragana and Katakana names. The Katakana for the "紅葉" is "モミジ" and the Katakana for "楓" is "カエデ".
