It's an orange color yet it's not an orange exactly--the mikan. They are also known as the Christmas or satsuma orange/mandarin. Have you had these sweet fruits before? Now that Winter has come close, it's the perfect season to enjoy mikan. Sit in a kotatsu and enjoy a mikan--that delicious vitamin C will help keep your skin nice and keep away nasty colds. Today, December 3rd, the National Fruit Association along with the Ministry of Agriculture has designated today to be Mikan Day. Check out these illustrations that feature realistic mikans or a mikan motif.
