-What is Doyo No Ushi No Hi?? Doyo is the 18-day period before the first day of autumn by the old calendar. (from around July 20 to around August 8) It is very humid in this season in Japan and this makes many people tend to lose their appetite and feel poorly. People often use the words Natsu-Bate, when they want to say that they are feeling poorly in the summer. During this period, it has been customary from old times to eat nutritious eel in order to prevent Natsu-Bate.
