Japan in Black and White ( and Reds)

Spotted the reds of Japan.
Red is generally called "aka (赤)" in Japanese. There are many traditional shades of red: the Japanese gave each shade of red its own elegant name in the old days. Shuiro (vermilion), akaneiro (madder red), enji (dark red), karakurenai (crimson) and hiiro (scarlet) are among of them.
