I ordered some sweets for the tea party!

Shichimi with gold leaf

Shichimi pepper is sold on the approach to Zenkoji Temple in Nagano Prefecture.


Shichimi pepper is a seasoning that has been used in Japan since the Edo period.


I think my Christmas present this year will be this shichimi pepper (with gold leaf!). I think I'll go for it!

Will the gold leaf be absorbed by the body?


I put it in pork miso soup!

I'm feeling celebratory!
