Mono no aware (物の哀れ?), literally “the pathos of things”, and also translated as “an empathy toward things”, or “a sensitivity to ephemera”, is a Japanese term for the awareness of impermanence (無常 mujō?), or transience of things, and both a transient gentle sadness (or wistfulness) at their passing as well as a longer, deeper gentle sadness about this state being the reality of life.

Japanese director Yasujiro Ozu was well known for creating a sense of mono no aware, frequently climaxing with a character very understatedly saying “Ii tenki desu ne?” (いい天気ですね?, “Fine weather, isn’t it?”), after a familial and societal paradigm shift, such as a daughter being married off, against the backdrop of a swiftly changing Japan.
