The theme of Satsuki (May) is "iris"
Ginza Hitoshigawa Co., Ltd., which develops high-quality bread “Ginza ni Shikawa” that sticks to water, has a sticker named “Ginza ni Shikawa Sensha tag: aka Satsuta day tag” on May 1 of this month. Will be distributed free of charge to bread buyers at stores nationwide. (Distributed only from May 13 (Wednesday) for the first time). The prototype is a paper card called "Senshafuda / Nousatsu" that is affixed to the pillars and ceilings of shrines and temples. In recent years, this has spread as a "mini Senshafuda sticker" among maiko and geisha people in the Kayanagi world, and the number of users in Rakugo, Kabuki, and the entertainment world has increased. At the same time, these collectors are emerging. Ginza Shikawa tells the beginning of the month Ginza will use the Shikawa Senshafuda (Sakuhifuda) as a free distribution of 1,000 pieces of bread at shop nationwide on the 1st day of every month. The production of the Shikawa Senshafuda (Sakuhifuda) in Ginza was commissioned by Mr. Ukinokichi Tachibana, who was the inventor of the "Mini Senshafuda Sticker" and the leading person. Please write the theme and feelings that suit each month in the design and letters.
◎ I think that what Japanese people need now is the rhythm of life.
An emergency declaration was issued in April, and people disappeared from downtown and downtown. Schools and workplaces have also been closed, and the introduction of telework has eliminated morning and evening commuting. And many people are forced to stay in their homes all day long. Meanwhile, some people may say, "I have lost my sense of the day of the week." Opportunities to go out are reduced, and contact with people is restricted. Not to mention the Tokyo Olympics, Gion Festival, Awa Odori, and local festivals are being canceled one after another. If these days go on, I'm afraid that eventually I won't even feel the season.
Since ancient times, the Japanese have been familiar with the summer solstice, winter solstice, spring equinox, and autumn equinox, which divide the year into 24 equal parts, and supplement them, such as soil, 88 nights, iriume, half summer, and 210 days. I have introduced knots into my life and lived with the rhythm of nature. Eventually, modernization, digitalization, and even climate change due to global warming were rushing, and the rhythm of life was being lost from our lives. I'm there, and this is my home waiting life in Corona. That is why I think that what we Japanese now need to regain the rhythm of life is.
◎ 1,000 pieces of each store will be distributed on the 1st day of every month, and Shikawa Senshafuda (Sakuhifuda) will be distributed to Ginza.
In the days when even the feeling of the day of the week fades, isn't the only reliance on three meals a day? At Ginza, a store specializing in bread, I take pride in that and at the same time realize that I have a sense of responsibility. I want to create a rhythm of life through "food." With that in mind, Shikawa Senshafuda (Sakuhifuda) was born in Ginza. I can't be dexterous to sell different breads every month, and I'm sorry for that. We found the answer in the traditional culture nurtured in Japan.
"Sakushu" means "first day of the month" in the lunar calendar. Speaking of the moon, "new moon". It is a pitch dark moon. Even in the same pitch darkness, the end of the month is "New Year's Eve (Misoka Tsugomori)". In other words, "Kuramasu / Dark" and "Monthly basket". The moon does not show up. And the day after that is "Sakushu". "Tachitachi" is "moonlit". It is the beginning of the month. Therefore, at first, I thought of distributing it on the "Sakuhi" of the lunar calendar. But now we live on the solar calendar. Bringing the lunar calendar into it not only causes confusion, but also destroys the rhythm of life. That is the end of the book. Therefore, I decided to distribute it on the first day of every month of the familiar solar calendar. And we are sorry for the first time, but we will distribute it from Wednesday, May 13th. It wasn't in time because it was planned so quickly. Please pardon only the first time.
◎ The theme of Satsuki (May) is "iris".
Uenoyoshi Tachibana, who produces the Shikawa Senshafuda (Sakuhifuda) every month in Ginza, revives the banquet letters to the present age, and became a disciple at the age of 16 to Ukon Tachibana, the famous founder of the Tachiban style banquet letters established as a culture. After training, he took Uchikichi Tachibana at the age of 19. Mr. Ukon gave me the advice that "I have a flying tool that only I can do," and in the process of trial and error, I came up with the idea of "Mini Senshafuda Sticker." That's why he is the undisputed leader in this field. When requesting Ginza to produce the Shikawa Sensha Fuda (Sakuhi Fuda), there is no more suitable person.
And this is the Shikawa Senshafuda (Sakuhifuda) in Ginza in May drawn by Uenoyoshi Tachibana. The four Edo characters include the Tachibana-ryu banquet characters, the Kabuki Kantei-ryu, the Sumo Negishi-ryu, and the Senja-fuda. The characters "Bread" and "Ginza ni Shikawa" in the background of "Ginza ni Shikawa Senshafuda" are Edo characters. “Bread is something that everyone is familiar with, so I took care not to mess around with it, and I made it so that everyone fell asleep or was hungry.” Mr. Unoyoshi explained. "And for the Edo script, I wrote it a little soft, because the Shikawa bread in Ginza is soft."
The technique of "semi-concealing" is used to hide letters in a readable range to create a glossy appearance. The light brown tea on the back is the image of bread ears. However, luxury was strictly forbidden during the Edo period due to the ban on luxury, and at that time, only brown, dark blue, and mouse colors could be used. However, it seems that the common people have created 48 colors for brown alone and 100 different colors for mouse color, and even if the same bread is called "dark brown", it changes every month. It is one of the fun to see how this looks like throughout the year.
Also, pay attention to the “tsukemi” pattern that changes every month. The theme for May is “iris”. "The irises are seasonal flowers that are often used for iris hot springs in the famous Dano festival. And, the irises are also marked with the letters" Shobu, "so that you can stab them at the eaves or put them up on the roof in case of disaster. There was also. In other words, I wrote and read "Amulet of Amulet" with the meaning of confronting the threat of the new coronavirus from time to time, "said Mr. Ukinokichi.
◎ A little souvenir and a little topic
As the life of corona nests continues, Shikawa's bread is popular in Ginza as a "slightly handy souvenir that people of all ages, families, and singles will appreciate. Thank you very much. We would be happy if Shikawa Senshafuda (Sakuhifuda) can be useful in Ginza as a little topic when handing such gifts.
The brand concept of Shikawa in Ginza is "Japanese modern". The shop's "goodwill, apron" is Shinzaburo Ichizawa in Kyoto, the staff wears a "tenugui" and "bread furoshiki" at Daikanyama's Kamawanu, and the Ginza Shikawa Senshafuda (Sakuhifuda) is With the cooperation of a prestigious brand such as Uenoyoshi Tachibana, we will focus on the real thing and express traditional Japanese culture in a new way through “food”. Please look forward to future developments.
