Chrysanthemum bloomsFrom Shubun to Kanro

After the autumnal equinox day, it is getting chilly in the morning and evening. Around this time, chrysanthemum starts to bloom and it feels like autumn more and more. On September 9 of the old Japanese calendar (on October 7 of the current calendar), there is the Chrysanthemum Festival called “Choyo no Sekku.”

Chrysanthemum as the Elixir of Immortality was introduced from China from the end of the Nara period until the beginning of the Heian period. The nobility in the Heian period thought chrysanthemum as a medicine. In addition, they loved its beauty and noble aroma. At the Chrysanthemum festival, they made a poem while they drunk “kikuzake” which is sake with chrysanthemum flower.

At Kashiwaya, we prepare “chrysanthemum-centric dishes” for the Chrysanthemum Festival. With your five senses, please enjoy the chrysanthemum, which ancient Japanese loved, and other autumn harvests: matsutake mushrooms, chestnuts, and so forth.
