About Kamishichiken (Seven Upper Houses)

Kamishichiken's crest

In the mid 15th century, part of Kitano (Kitano Tenmangu) Shrine was burnt down. The shrine was rebuilt and the extra wood was used to build seven tea houses (ochaya). These seven tea houses were the origin of Kamishichiken.

In 1587, Toyotomi Hideyoshi hosted a large tea party (kitano oochakai). The tea-house keepers offered mitarashidango (sweet dumplings) to him and he loved the dumplings. He gave the tea houses exclusive rights to do business.

Thus, Kamishichiken's crest is represented as skewered sweet dumplings.
