After the ceremony, Papa and I went to a cake shop. The shopkeeper gave us cups of tea and samples of cake. The design at the bottom of the cup is an ume blossom.
This is a chalky "cake" that is sold during this time of year. (Papa doesn't know what it is called or why it is sold.)We didn't buy any. It isn't our favorite.
We bought sakura mochi to celebrate Big Sister's graduation. We also bought some of these. They have black sesame seeds and bamboo charcoal powder in them.
