ご挨拶 Greetings

ご挨拶 「 登高(タカキニノボル) 」秋分〜寒露〜霜降 Greeting " Gumi-bukuro " From Autumn Equinox to Cold Dew to Frost Descent





The heat dies down and the season changes around autumn equinox.  You must feel autumn in the air.

At Kashiwaya, we prepare dishes with chrysanthemum around September 9th of the old calendar.  We removed the scent ball which had been hung at the entrance from May 5th and replaced it with Gumi-bukuro (the bag with oleaster) on September 9th.  I feel that the seasons come around every time I change the scent ball to Gumi-bukuro.

Gumi-bukuro derived from the Chinese custom.  They believed they could live long by climbing to a high place with a bag filled with oleaster, drinking sake with chrysanthemum and eating something on September 9th.  This custom was introduced to Japan as one of the palace events and aristocrats made a bag with oleaster as a decoration for the chrysanthemum festival.

After the autumn equinox, Kashiwaya prepares dishes with chrysanthemum flowers.  Please enjoy the autumnal taste like matsutake mushroom and chestnuts with all your five senses.
