Shokan(小寒)- New Year’s Day just passed -

The beginning of 2019.
We wish this year will be a bright year leading to the future.
We also hope everyone has a peaceful and healthy year.
I look forward to your continued good will in the coming year.

In Japan, as the preparation for New Year, a Kadomatsu decoration was put on the porch or the entrance door.
The Kadomatsu is made of pine(matsu) branches with three bamboos.
The Kadomatsu take on the role of sign to welcome the deity of the new year (Toshigami-sama)
and they were put away after events to celebrate New Year finish.
The period of placing the Kadomatsu is called “Matsu-no-uchi” The length of “Matsu-no-uchi” is different among the regions;
in Kanto, it is until 7 January, but in Kansai, it is until 15 January.

After the “Matsu-no-uchi,” we need to put away the new year’s decoration,
such as Kadomatsu and Shimenawa, and things are back to normal.
This period is called “Matsu-sugi” which represents the Japanese people’s mind,
“Back to the New Year, but we are still in the New Year mood.”

Around 19 January, two weeks after the winter solstice, we can realize that the days are getting longer.
It is getting brighter in the daytime, and we can feel the new seasons will be bright
even though the coldest day has not come yet.
In Kashiwaya, we will welcome you with the cuisine which makes you feel the new season in the strictly cold days.
