The beginning of the Chakin Sushi



The beginning of the elegant looking Chakin Sushi , which had been produced as a refined taste,was happened one day in the Taisho era at Fushimi princely house.
People held a chakai(tea ceremony) there, and I (the founder, Yoshitarou  Ohara 小原義太郎) made something with the taste of “tea” extemporaneously.
The guests approved it and the miyadenka(the imperial highness)named it “chakin” since its colour and appearance was like a chakin (cloth used in the tea ceremony)
