節分も終わり立春。新しい年の春うららかな陽射しのもと、東山付近を散策。銀閣寺付近の哲学の道。観光客もまばらな、静かな古都。

Strolled through Higashiyama, east Kyoto, under the fresh sunlight of the new year (spring) day, "Risshun", the next day of "Setsubun".  "Road of philosophy" near Ginkakuji temple.  A quiet ancient city with sparse tourists.

立春(2月4日)は「立春朝絞り」が地元のレストランや酒屋に出荷される日。今年は全国44蔵が参加。近年人気が出て手に入り難くなっている。早速購入すると共に、晩には割烹でも新年を祝った。

On  "Risshun" morning (February 4), "Risshun Asa Shibori" (sake brewed on Risshun morning) is released to local restaurants and liquor shops.  This year, 44 brewers nationwide participate.  In recent years, it became popular and difficult to obtain.  Celebrated New Year by purchasing the bottles as well as enjoying it at a restaurant in the evening.
