Will the short coat worn over a kimono of the shrinkage that produced Ojiya shrinkage and a short coat worn over a kimono of the Ojiya pongee by an order from wine cellar north Yuki of Sado be very luxurious? The affinity of シボ only by the shrinkage that we Japanese alphabet produced for the first time and the natural indigo coloring is distinguished.
The history of the hemp cloth of Ojiya is very old, and, on the record, there is it with "1,000 steps of trade junk Echigo country dealer cloth" in the Engi era type. In addition, there will be the history in about 1000 for a textile because there is the record that Yoritomo Minamoto gave an Imperial envoy Echigo cloth as a farewell gift to (1192) for Kenkyu era three years. A high quality wild ramie (ちょま) which was a textile was rich, and a textile woven in the fiber which I "watched 苧積, and made this skin of with" (the sea) and work to say called it with Echigo cloth (えちごふ), and it was produced as private use clothes of the farmhouses of this snow deep district, and I gradually dealt in, and it came to be used for this district as cloth for it in those days.
It is (1670), lordless samurai of Akashi, family of 堀次郎将俊 in the days of Edo in Kanbun decade that I add improvement to this flat textile Echigo cloth, and founded today's Ojiya linen crepe. Raked a small gift of money enclosed in a piece of twisted paper which resisted the weft and finished it by a process called "シボ collecting" of the Ojiya inimitableness after having finished weaving it and started シボ (ちぢみじわ), and the shrinkage cloth which was comfortable as the standard length of cloth for kimono suitable for the summer was created. I brought epoch-making result to a conventional hemp cloth, and it was called "Ojiya linen crepe" to express "シボ" and it was wide and spread after completion in the Uonuma district whole area during few less than 10 years, and it was it in the basis to form a textile production center as of things of Ojiya, Tookamachi, Shiozawa, Muikamachi.
In addition, the demand increased remarkably partly because the Edo Shogunate set it of the formal dress of the general samurai for the Genroku era period, and a shrinkage wholesale dealer was formed. Through reform of the Kyoho era, Reform of the Tempo Era, I gradually decline afterwards. When the Meiji period begins, working come to be performed an appearance and the consistency of the cotton yarn, and the production increases drastically; at the present of the article of Ojiya linen crepe, the Ojiya pongee is born.

It is the one of "the Dolls' Festival (March 3) Iris Festival (May 5) Star Festival (July 7) Chrysanthemum Festival (September 9) (January 7) the seventh day of January", and, on May 5, it is said "the festival of the iris" (a game) five festivals.

The Boy's Festival is an old event to continue from the Nara era. The material was not the thing which limited it to the edge [beginning in a meaning called the day of 午 [horse] of] in May of the month. However, because a sound of five [] is the same as 午 [], I come to point at 5th every month, and it is told even if it became on May 5 before long. I bathed in it as "a sweet-flag bath" in those days I let the eaves do the medicinal herb which expelled a demon and a done "iris" with a mugwort or and I avoided malarial air could enter hot water. I am considered to be the festival of the boy and display "an armor" and "a helmet" protecting the body, and it seems to be a thing after Edo that I put up "a carp streamer" and pray for growth and the success in life of the boy, and came to do a celebration.

I eat "a rice cake containing bean jam wrapped in an oak leaf" as the mascot that "birthright is not cut off" by not dropping an old leaf till a new bud is over a rice dumpling wrapped in bamboo leaves for the first Boy's Festival (the festival when it is the first time a boy) from the second year.

The second tea includes ingredients such as the theanine which there is under the profit than the tea after the tea abundantly most.
