White Day

March 14th is White Day which is a unique custom to Japan. On this day, men give women presents in return for their Valentine's chocolates. Confectionery makers began it as a way to promote sales of confections like marshmallows. Now, White Day's gifts are not limited to foods.

Here are a chocolate-coated bean paste balls named shoro(小露), but they are eaten at any time of year.

The revitalization plan of the Great Ginkgo(大銀杏) at Tsurugaoka Hachiman-gu are released.
Three ways to revive the tree are to set out a part of the base with live fibers, to grow ginkgo trees from cuttings and to expect to send out tillers.
We hope its revival.
