ご挨拶 Greetings

ご挨拶 「 薫風 」穀雨〜立夏 Greeting "Smells Like Young Leaves" From Grain Rain to Start of Summer*








We hear the news of cherry blossoms blooming earlier than usual.  At the same time, I find that maple tree buds has begun to bloom.  While we are fascinated by cherry flowers, maples prepare for the next seasons quietly.  When cherries are out of bloom, the scenery changed into maples’ bright green colours at once.  South wind brings us fresh air through young leaves and let us know the change of seasons.

“Wind smells like young leaves.”

From this phrase, even though people in old times knew the coming of strict summer, they tried to enjoy the comfortable climate for a little while.

The time of fresh green is short and will end quickly if you don’t pay attention to it.  Like “fresh greens,” ingredients at the beginning of early summer also give us a fresh and pure impression.  Please enjoy the taste of the late spring and the early summer at Kashiwaya.  Around the start of summer, we will prepare the summer taste: pike conger, ayu, kamo-nasu (eggplant).

*Grain rain/ Start of Summer: The traditional East Asian calendars divide a year into 24 solar terms. “Grain rain” is the 6th solar term and starts from April 20th. “Start of Summer” is the 7th solar term and starts from May 6th.
