HIGAN お彼岸

IMG_1821

Higan is Buddhist event that is an important opportunity to appreciate our ancestors.

It is believed that people will be able to go to the land of Perfect Bliss by holding memorial services for their ancestors during Higan.

For this year, Higan had already started last September 26th and it will end on the 26th of this month.

People visit their family graves and clean them.

We offer some foods, sweets and snacks to the Buddha in Higan.

Ohagi is a typical Japanese sweet for Higan, and you can see what it’s like in this picture.

If you haven’t decided yet on what to get, why don’t you try our Senbei? 😉

 

今年のお彼岸は9月20日から26日です。

彼岸入りに、たねやさんのおはぎをお供えしました(^^)

雑穀米を使用したおはぎで、とても美味しかったです☆

ご先祖様に日頃の感謝をお伝えする大切な一週間。

お供え物をまだ決めていらっしゃらない方、淡平のお煎餅はいかがでしょうか?

We had a tour for a group of revitalization of our town.

It was held under one of the members of our ward assembly, Kawagoe Seiichi.

The members of the group looked around our factory and actually they tried to make their own Senbeis.

They are the people who are interested in the culture and history about our town and our country.

We see their awareness were high and I thought I have to learn about Japan more…

I’m so glad that they seemed to be enjoying the tour and ware interested in our product.

葛飾区議会委議員、川越誠一さん主催の町歩き企画、『立石の歴史、文化、タンケン、ハッケン、ホットケン』の一環として、淡平本社工場ツアーをさせて頂きました(^▽^)

企画名からもお分かりの通り、地元の歴史や文化について町を探検しながら色々な発見をしていくという企画ですので、皆様学ぶ意識が高い方々ばかりで、見習わなくてはいけないなと反省いたしました(>_<)

戦後に建てられた工場や母屋、初めての煎餅焼体験を皆様に楽しんで頂けたようで何よりでした☆

神田本店だけでなく、浜松町の支店や青戸工場直売店も多くの方々に知って頂けると嬉しいです(^^)

Our curio market was featured in a magazine called ‘Edogaku’.

As I mentioned previously in one of my blogs here, My father-in-law organized this event because he collects antiques and it was held at the end of July.

You can see how did it go in this picture!

There were lots of dealers who sold their curios.

We are hoping to do this again next year

If you are interested in this event, please watch out for the next.
