ご挨拶 「 青梅雨 」 夏至〜小暑 Greeting ” Ao-tsuyu ” From Summer Solstice to Slight Heat*






Around the season of fresh verdure, the sunlight is getting brighter day by day.  In our garden, maple leaves are waving in a wind.  The sunlight filtering through the trees is dancing on green moss.  It looks like a frothy wave on the shore and brings out the beautiful tree’s shade.

Just before the height of summer, the rainy season has started and rain drive away the heat temporarily.

There is a perfect word for this season: Ao-tsuyu.
*Literally, “ao” means green and blue, and “tsuyu” means rainy season.

At rainy days, trees look more vivid than usual. The word, “ao-tsuyu,” comes from this vivid scenery.  Also, “ao” is associated with the woods’ beauty and freshness.  From the word “ao-tsuyu,” we can imagine that people in old times valued the moment before the harsh summer and spent this period calmly.  After the rainy season, the height of summer had come and they were at the mercy of severe weather.  They must be closer to the nature than we today.

Kashiwaya prepare the cuisine of Tanabata.  Now is the best season of ayu, pike conger, and summer vegetables.  Please enjoy the time at our restaurant.

*Summer Solstice/ Slight Heat: The traditional East Asian calendars divide a year into 24 solar terms. “Summer Solstice” is the 10th solar term and starts from 6/21. “Slight Heat” is the 11th solar term and starts from 7/7.
