It’s almost summer. European football season finished and Japanese players have returned to their home country.

There’s a word fubutsushi in Japanese and it means things which remind us of a particular season. For example, things like fireworks and watermelon are, for many Japanese, regarded as a fubutsushi of summer.

For Cerezo Osaka supporters, former Cerezo players’ visit to Maishima, where the club’s training ground and clubhouse are located, may be seen as a fubutsushi of summer. Although it’s still the very beginning of summer, former players already visited Maishima or other Cerezo-related place.
