Clovers come out in fields around in May. Usually it has three leaves, but there are rarely four-leaved clovers. It is believed that you will be shiawase (happy) if you find it. When I was a child, girls enjoyed picking them up and making necklaces and crowns by braiding the stems. There were no video games like these days, however, they had spend more blessed time, I guess.

May’s seasonal confection of Kyoto has yomogi taste, a kind of herb. The young leaves have unique refreshing smell , therefore they are often used for Japanese spring sweets. Sugar-glazed adzuki beans are topped to enhance sweetness and that texture.

We serve a cup of green matcha tea (or choice of coffee) and our wagashi based on our textile design.
