December 21st is the winter solstice, a day with the longest night hours of the year. The winter solstice is a day that is observed widely in Japan on the 22nd of December. The solstice, commonly referred to as “To-ji”, is celebrated by taking hot baths with yuzu citruses and eating dishes containing pumpkin. These traditions are believed to have healing effects on the body, cleansing it of toxins and disease.
Have a cup of Jugetsudo’s yuzu sencha for good health on this year’s To-ji!
