Recommend delicious sweets that make your eyes feel cold!
The sense of the season is very important in Japanese tea ceremony.
This is because, in the past, technology was not as advanced as it is now, so there were no fans or air conditioners to stay cool in hot enviroment.
So how did you come up with a way to feel “cold”?
This is because we emphasized the design of confectionery for “feel cooler and more comfortable” from the viewpoint of vision.
It’s said scientifically, but people get more than 80% of their information from their eyes.
That’s why visual “feeling or suggestive of coolness” is so effective.

Japanese tea ceremony is to enjoy the environment
During the hot season, Japanese tea ceremony prepares cold green tea and refreshingly cool sweets.
In addition, a warm tea party is organized in a cold season to provide a warm and comfortable environment for participants.
In this way, we think about how to make people comfortable from the environment.That’s one reason why people say, “hospitality”.
