“狩” is a meaning called the hunting.
Not only Japanese hunt a beast and a bird , but also hunt fruit and the nut.
And we Japanese expresses that I enjoy the beauty of the trees and plants and the flower with “狩”.

Everybody goes to the mountain. And I watch colored leaves and taste a season.

The Japanese did “紅葉狩 “(maple-tree viewing)for more than 1,000 years.
