In the past, ice was a precious commodity. The tradition of saving ice from the winter and presenting it to emperors and generals lead to the creation of this event. Buildings and caves in which this ice was stored were known as ice houses, or himuro.
Afterwards, any food that was cut into trapezoids and made to look like ice was called an ice house, or himuro.
