3rd March at Cafe Japan カフェジャパンのひな祭り


The dolls were decorated at the restaurant for the traditional festival Hinamatsuri on 3 March.  We decorate every year soon after we finish other custom Mame Maki- 4 February to wish children's happiness especially daughters.  For a month, we decorate them with enjoying and we clean up by 4 March.  It was a hard day on 3 March since we had to clean them up after we close the restaurant.  During 3days after we had holidays, we made special Japanese sweets for the guests and we shared with them.
少し遅い更新となりましたが、カフェジャパンでも恒例の雛人形を飾っていました。3月1日はお休みしましたので、2日からの営業となり、2日、3日、4日はひな祭りにちなんで桜の風味の和菓子を用意しました。2日の日は、桜の葉の粉を使ったミニ大福。桜の香りがします。(すみません、写真は撮り忘れてしまいました。)
On 3 March, we made Sakura Mochi covered with Cherry leaf which seasoned with salt.  Sweet slight pink sticky rice and red bean jam is matching with salty leaf.  And we made Arare-Rice crackers.  We made sweet for children but we can make salty as well.  Homemade rice cracker is fresh and the crunchy sounds makes more tasty!  We are very happy to share these foods with guests and many foreign customers enjoyed them.  
3日、4日は桜餅を用意しました。4日は特別に宅配弁当にも桜餅をつけましたよ。そして、あられも作ったので、あられもプレゼントしました。外国人やスリランカの方にもお召し上がりいただきましたが、皆様喜んで召し上がって下さって大変嬉しかったです。ありがとうございました。

Wow, how pretty those dolls are!! Your family may have a lot of female members. I miss these Japanese sweets, which were so good to eat at the place far away from Japan.

Thank you, Sly pan. How are you? I know many Japanese are missing seasonal Japanese sweets. That's why we can enjoy them more when we go back to the country.
