A GIFT FROM IMPERIAL HOUSEHOLD AGENCY


Imperial Household Agency gave us something money can't buy as a gift. "Kikuyaki Zangetsu (Remaining moon with chrysanthemums seals)", special Japanese cake with the Imperial crest of the chrysanthemum.
お金では買えないものを宮内庁が贈ってくれた。菊のご紋章をあしらった特別な和菓子、「菊焼残月」。

Japanese character "ha" on the back of the box means these cakes were made by Tokyo's famous confectionery shop, Hanazono Manju, who has more than 170 years of history. They say, if the stamp is "to", it means Toraya.
箱の裏にある「は」の文字は、このお菓子が170年以上の歴史を持つ東京の和菓子の老舗、花園万頭で作られたことを示す。もし「と」だったら、それは「とらや」製だそう。
