The word matsu means both “pine” and “to wait” (for the deity to descend), and the pine is part of the felicitous trio of pine, bamboo and plum tree, and the auspicious pairing of crane and pine. Pine decorations are displayed at New Year’s, and a monumental pine tree is painted on the backdrop of the Noh stage – all expressing the pine’s association with luck and longevity.

湯屋の雫

湯屋の雫

江戸時代はまだ家に風呂がなく、湯屋が次々に作られ、その数約600軒。
初期の蒸し風呂のようなものから次第に湯船の形式へ。湯屋では身分を越え、老若男女問わず文字通り裸の付き合い。湯上がりには、蘭引(らんびき)とよばれる蒸留器で花を蒸留した化粧水なども人気だったとか。
あたたかくふわりと香る華やかな湯上がりの香り。

In the Edo Period (1603-1868) people didn’t have baths at home, and public bathhouses were built to meet the need. There were about 600 in Edo. At first they were steam baths, then large bathtubs were developed. As all were naked and people comingled without regard for age, gender, or rank, the bathhouse was an egalitarian place. Apparently another popular item was a scented lotion made with floral essences distilled using a still known as a ranbiki.
This fragrance has the warmth and friendly glow of the moment you step out of the bath.
