Girls' Sweet Day and Wagashi with " Celebration " Japanese calligraphy





This shop is the long-established store of Japanese sweets (Wagashi).
The salesclerk puts on a clean cowl.

Her traditional style treats the heart of the customer.







 The set of ornamental dolls "Hina-Ningyō" stood in line.
It is a thing to celebrate Hina-matsuri (Girls' Day March 3).

In a show case, I see the cakes which seem to be delicious and delicate.







This is the traditional decoration.
Each doll has various roles.

The season is going to come this year.


掌に 飾つて見るや 雛の市
小林 一茶 (1763 - 1828)

On the palm decorate and view Doll's market
Kobayashi Issa  (1763 - 1828)




Welcome to the classic world...
Here is Ginza, Tokyo.







   " 祝 " (shuku, or iwau). It is translated as celebrate, congratulate, blessing, etc.
   This character is written by Kanzi, Semi-cursive script. 

   Etymology : Ideogrammic compound
    示 (show) +  兄 (elder)





白金も 黄金も珠も 何せむに  勝れる宝 子にしかめやも
山上 憶良(660 - 733)  万葉集

Platinum or Gold even if treasure no matter what  the great supreme it is children
Yamanoue no Okura(660 - 733)  Man'yōshū (about 759 AD, the oldest collection of Japanese poetry)








Delicate handmade confectionery.
It is a sublime work of art.

Craftsmen in the long history has been to improve the technique.





And God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
Old Testament Book of Genesis 1-27

神は自分のかたちに人を創造された。すなわち、神のかたちに創造し、男と女とに創造された。
旧約聖書 創世記 第1章-第27節



God bless you.

  13. Hi Ruma - what a good thing - a day to celebrate girls - I think their role is often taken too much for granted. Love that there is kanzi for celebrate - so applicable in this instance. Peace. B

  19. Bardzo lubię japońskie słodycze, bo są mało słodkie. Moje szczególnie ulubione to ciastka z mąki ryżowej, przypominające kluseczki (jak knedle). Lubię też słodycze z fasoli. W Polsce jednak totalnie nie znane.
    Lalki też lubię jedynie japońskie, bo to dzieła sztuki.

  23. As cores orientais me encantam, como as cores de um modo geral nas culturas, nos povos que existem pelo mundo, aqui no Brazil tem muita cor...mas aqui neste blog as cores chegam de forma milenar, cores que se desenvolveram num raiar de Sol há muito tempo, a cultura milenar do Japan. Arigatô por partilhar.
    ps. Carinho respeito e abraço.
