The dog days :土用の丑の日/Doyo no ushi no hi.
On the day of the ox in midsummer Japanese have a custom to eat eel which
started in the Edo period to prevent summer fatigue.
Doyo means 18 days before the first day of each season.Generally speaking, the Ox day during the doyo indicates the summer one, but as the doyo comes around four times in a year, the day also comes around several times in a year.
The day of the ox is named after one of the twelve animals
of the Chinese zodiac.
