"Autumn has come, my garden is covered with fallen leaves, nobody wades through a pile of fallen leaves to my house", author unknown in "The Kokin Wakashu".
A female writer composed this poem. Her lover might have had a change of mind. He didn't come to her anymore. When I read this poem for the first time, I had a different image of it because she stated firmly. I thought a reclusive person wrote this poem.
These dried confections represent drifted fallen leaves of trees such as a ginkgo, a maple and a pine. There is also an acorn.
This is nerikiri(a mixture of sweet white bean paste and soft cakes of pounded rice).
This is yokan(hardened bean paste by kanten).
