Toji --- Winter Solstice


This year, the Winter Solstice day was this past Sunday, December 21.  We are supposed to take Yuzu ( Japanese lemon ) bath and eat pumpkin and red beans to get over the cold winter. 

I forgot to take the Yuzu bath on Sunday.

Last night, I did.  You can see Yuzu lemons.
( This time, I scratched the surface of Yuzu to make it smell better and to squeeze the juice--- whose oil softens the skin ! )   Sometimes I chop Yuzu and wrap it in a towel or gauze.  Smelled so good.
