#Hotel Kuki in #Kuki City, Saitama Prefecture.
Yesterday was a big cold day. I was worried that snow might accumulate even in the Kanto plains, but it turned out to rain, which is a bit of a relief.
The 24th of the 24 solar terms is "Daikan," which means "great cold," and the next one is "Risshun," which means "first day of spring. The last day of Daikan (the day before Risshun) is Setsubun, a time for bean-throwing. In the days of the old calendar, Risshun meant the beginning of a new year, so the Setsubun bean-throwing ceremony is a New Year's Eve event.
Shokan (short cold) → Daichan (big cold) → Risshun (the first day of spring).
Sake, soy sauce, and miso made during the "cold brewing" period are prized for their depth of flavor, as the cold water prevents the growth of bacteria and allows fermentation to proceed slowly. We are looking forward to the finished product.
Plan with free hot water bottle - warm bedding will keep your body and mind warm♪ - Recommended for those who do not like the cold and would like a warm bedding in advance.
