Life with 24 Sekki


At ITSUMO, we love exploring cultural and seasonal observations using the 24 sekki solar calendar. Also known as “small seasons,” 24 sekki doesn’t use dates to mark seasons, but instead, it divides the year using natural phenomena. Thinking in 24 sekki is another way of appreciating the annual changes in nature’s cycle.

Here we would like to invite you to a series of posts made in collaboration between Kintoki Sweets & ITSUMO. With her pure passion and creation, Sen Sakamoto of Kintoki Sweets will present seasonal desserts  and traditional recipes while incorporating some of our favourite products we offer at ITSUMO.

Our ITSUMO team & Sen share many interests and a deep love for Japanese food & culture. Since 2019, our collaboration has continued to flourish. If you’d like to know more, follow us on Instagram for bi-monthly posts inspired by the 24sekki calendar.
