Yesterday was Children’s Day. Shin and Mei-Shun enjoyed 粽=chimaki, sweetened rice cake stick and 柏餅=kashiwa-mochi, rice cake wrapped by oak leaves, filled with sweetened bean paste. Well, the couple is in weight control, yet mentioned delicacy is indispensable. They therefore walked to the nearest shrine expecting to spend calories, while to make a wish on 朔 of lunar April.
