Four Seasons in Japanese

The names of the four seasons in Japanese are natsu, haru, fuyu and aki.
  • natsu
    Summer.
  • haru
    Spring.
  • fuyu
    Winter.
  • aki
    Autumn.

A single "season" is called a kisetsu 季節. And the word for the "four seasons" in Japanese is the Japanese number "four" followed by the kanji for "season," see: shiki 四季.

Sometimes, shunkashuutou 春夏秋冬 can be used to refer to the four seasons, or to each or every one of them. This word would be a "four-character idiom," yojijukugo 四字熟語.
