Speaking of  the flower in the rainy season, most of  Japanese people think “hydrangea”.  Do you know them?

They’re originally from Asia. Beautiful, aren’t they?  The colors and shapes are several…Blue, pink, purple, white, pale-green, and so on.

Today, I will introduce some Japanese things which the motifs are “hydrangea”.

these are the Japanese-style confectioneries and cups for the Japanese tea ceremony.

The confectioneries are made from jelly, sweet bean paste, and so on. The tastes are really good. I love them. I hope you can try them someday!

Also, I had dishes coming before the tea ceremony, and they are the special dishes only for the ceremony. It is called  “Kaisei Ryori” or “Chakaiseki”. The food amounts on the each plates are pretty small, but the food arrangements and the plates are really beautiful.

Of course, the tastes are delicious, too!
