We celebrate Hina-Matsuri, Girls' festival on the 3rd March , all over Japan. There is a shop which makes traditional Hina dolls in Kyoto. Customers can enjoy seeing traditional dolls and buying them there, of course. Kyoto has old shops you can not find anywhere else. For example, there is a shop which makes Eboshi, a headgear worn by court nobles and samurai a long time ago. It is fun to walk around in Kyoto because you can encounter unexpected things like that.

March's Seasonal confections of Kyoto have Sakura and tangerine tastes. They are inspired that we display a cherry tree on the right and Tachibana (a tangerine tree) on the left side of the Hina doll stage, that called “Ukon no Sakura” and “Sakon no Tachibana”. A tangerine-flavored one is made of white sweetened bean paste heated with a puree, and the peel is placed on top. A Sakura-flavored one is made of white sweet bean paste mixed with salted cherry blossoms, and they are also decorated on top.

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