Japanese apricot in the HAMARIKYU




Hello : )

It’s cold today, isn’t it?

But spring is just around the bend.

 

We Japanese like flowers and nature for all four seasons.

Speaking of spring, we visualize Cherry blossom…and Japanese apricot!

 

Now is the best time to view Japanese apricot at HAMARIKYU near by BUREAU Ginza!

This garden is a typical Daimyo(Japanese feudal lord) garden in the Edo period with a tidal pond(Shioiri-no-Ike) and two wild-duck hunting sites(Kamoba). 

There are 130 Japanese apricots in the garden.
 

 
 
 
How about to feel coming of spring with beautiful Japanese apricots?
 
Have a nice day ;-)

★★What's SETSUBUN??★★

Setsubun ("seasonal division") is a festival held on February 3 or 4, one day before the start of spring according to the Japanese lunar calendar. Setsubun is not a national holiday. For many centuries, the people of Japan have been performing rituals with the purpose of chasing away evil spirits at the start of spring. Around the 13th century, for example, it became a custom to drive away evil spirits by the strong smell of burning dried sardine heads, the smoke of burning wood and the noise of drums. While this custom is not popular anymore, a few people still decorate their house entrances with fish heads and holy tree leaves in order to deter evil spirits from entering. In modern days, the most commonly performed setsubun ritual is the throwing of roasted beans around one's house and at temples and shrines across the country. When throwing the beans, you are supposed to shout "Oni wa soto! Fuku wa uchi!" ("Devils out, happiness in"). Afterwards you should pick up and eat the number of beans, which corresponds to your age. ・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・Anyway.Enjoy your SETSUBUN(*^。^*)
