ご挨拶 Greetings

ご挨拶 「 中秋の名月 」 処暑〜白露 Greeting ” Chusyu-no-meigetsu ” From “The End of Heat” to “White Dew”*








The autumn is closer around mid-August, and at the beginning of September, we can sense the autumn.  The temperature drops at night and dews fall on leaves in the morning.  The dews are sparkling white in the early morning sun.  The ancient people call around this season “white dew.”

 The coming of autumn makes me glad and calm.  The heat lets up and the weather is more comfortable in the evening.  The breeze is still warm but it is pleasant for me.  Looking up at the evening sky, I find the moon, “sho-getsu”.

 “Chu-shu (仲秋/中秋)” is mid-autumn.  “仲秋” means August on the lunar calendar, and  “中秋” is August 15th.

 The first moon after Chu-shu (仲秋) is called “sho-getsu.”  The ancient people gave names to the moon from “sho-getsu” to the next new moon: Futsuka-zuki, Mika-zuki, Yūzuki-yo, Matsu-yoi, Mei-getsu (Jugo-ya), Iza-yoi, Tachimachi-zuki, Imachi-zuki, Fushi-machi-zuki, Fuke-machi-zuki, Ariake-zuki. 

 From the names, I feel ancient people’s strong feelings toward the autumn moon.  Before the full moon, they might appreciate surviving the harsh summer safely.  Then, they welcome the autumn with joy.

 Kashiwaya prepares the cuisine with the theme of the autumn moon.  Please enjoy the taste of tilefish, pike conger, sweetfish, and so on.  The autumn moon is so beautiful that you forget about the time.  Please find the harvest moon in our cuisine.

 Thunder might rumbl.  The contents might be changed depending on the weather.


*The end of heat/ white dew: The traditional East Asian calendars divide a year into 24 solar terms. “The End of Heat” is the 14th solar term and starts on August 23rd.  “White dew” is the 15th solar term and starts on September 8th.
