late-summer vacation

I have a late-summer vacation with my family.
We enjoyed the hotel life, swimming pool and having a good dinner.
I love to spend a time with my family.
But recently, I think my first daughter and my son would like to spend a fun time with their friends.
It can't be helped...

Recently, New influenza is prevalent in Japan again.
Even if they are the patient without disease, they may catch an illness.
So everybody need the prevention of influenza.
What is the No.1 prevention?
That is the Hand washing and the Gargle!!
It is really easy and childish.
But it is important.
The government is also calling for people to wear masks and gargle as well as to wash their hands.
And we recommend our powdered tea.
Of course, you can drink it. That is tasty. But it is also good to gargle.
You know, Green tea have many Tannins(Catechins).
It is good for the prevention of cold.

Please try it!!

Respect-for the-Aged Day(敬老の日)

Respect-for-the-Aged Day (敬老の日, Keiro no hi) is a Japanese holiday celebrated annually to honor elderly citizens. A national holiday since 1966, this used to be held on September 15. Beginning in 2003, Respect for the Aged Day is held on the third Monday of September. "According to Wikipedia"

So it is 21 Sep., 2009 on this year.

This national holiday traces its origins to 1947, when Nomatanimura (now Yachiyocho), Hyogo Prefecture(Our store is in Hyogo.) proclaimed September 15 Old Folks' Day (Toshiyori no Hi).

Actually, it is nothing special to respect for the elderly person.
But we need the day to re-realize.
So many people give some present for their grandparent.
Green tea gift is really popular for the elderly person.
