Matsue, along with Kyoto and Kanazawa, is famous for its tea and sweets shops. One of the reasons for this is the existence of Harusato Matsudaira, the seventh lord of the Matsudaira family of the Matsue domain during the Edo period. Lord Harusato Matsudaira was a famous tea master who called himself Fumai and mastered the tea ceremony culture. In Matsue, the tea ceremony culture fostered by Lord Fumai still lives on in people’s lives. In the town, many long-established tea shops and Japanese sweets shops continue to protect their noren. The tea ceremony aimed at by Lord Fumai has been passed down as the Fumai style, and many of the Japanese sweets used at tea ceremonies, including the three famous Matsue sweets from Wakakusa, Yamakawa, and Natanosato, have been passed down to this day. Masu.
In addition, Matsue’s tea ceremony culture is a unique culture that has been inherited and cultivated in daily life, reflecting the history and climate of Matsue. Not only local residents but also tourists visiting Matsue come here for the tea ceremony and sweets, and they are also popular as souvenirs.
