July 1st is a day we eat "Himuro Dumplings".
Do you know Kanazawa people keep up a custom of eating "Himuro Dumplings"?

In the domain duties era, that's the day Kaga Domain presents an ice to Tokugawa Bakufu goverment.

According to the documents, those ices were lapped with bamboo leaves and carried all the way of 120 Li(about 480 km) to Edo(Tokyo) with taking 4 days long.

People in Kanazawa used to place dumplings on Shrine and pray that it arrives in Edo safely.

Also Kanazawa people eat dumplings instead of ice to beat the summer heat.

Himuro means natural refrigerator to keep snow.

They used to save snow there in winter and open it up on July 1 st (June 1 st in old calendar).

Why dont't you experience this food culture in Kanazawa?
