ご挨拶 Greetings

ご挨拶 「春きざす」 雨水〜啓蟄 Greeting " Scent of Spring " From Rain Water to Insects Awaken*




かすがののわかなつみにやしろたえの そでふりはへてひとのいくらむ




It has become springlike.  Sunlight in the morning is getting brighter than before.  But sometimes the weather suddenly got cold.  I cannot wait for a warm sunny spring day.

According to the Japan Meteorological Agency, this winter is warmer and there has been less snowfall than average.  The word “global warming” crosses my mind.  Come to think of it, there were not so many freezing days and it was easier to spend.  Modern people have many ways to survive the hot and cold days.  That is probably why they become less sensitive to the changing of the season.

We can find joy at “pleasant spring” after we pass the strict winter.  We cannot realize the value of “refreshing autumn” until we survive the strict summer.

Kasugano no     Wakana tsumi niya     Shirotae no
Sode furi hahete     Hito no iku ramu

Those people will seem to pick up young greens at Kasugano.
They wear white kimonos and swing their sleeves.

I can imagine that people are glad at the coming of spring from the bottom of their heart.  This poem seems to express a beautiful spring.

Our guests can enjoy Hinamatsuri through spring cuisine.  Please feel the spring air at Kashiwaya.
