After we went down the mountain, it stormed. Since we were hungry, we had a lunch at a restaurant named Yamami-chaya waiting for the storm passed. The restaurant was very nice. It has traditional irori fireplaces, and they cooked fish in front of us. The fish was so yummy with just salt. We also enjoyed local cuisine.
We went to Katharine's bar after the meeting. Katharine is mother of Suzanne, who is a television personality. Her sister, Margarine, is also working at the bar. We met Katharine and Margarine. They are so beautiful and kind. Since my friends want to upload photos with them on my blog, I show these. My friends are still young, but they will be big guys in the near future :-) (Please click here to read more.) [キャサリン's bar]の続きを読む
Today, I made mugwort rice cakes. Every year around this season is the season of mugwort. I had picked leaves of mugwort at the Tama river, Tokyo by last year. This year, I picked it at Maizuru park. When I was in the US, I also found mugwort and made the mugwort rice cakes. Many Japanese like to eat the rice cake with bean jam. But I like to eat it with sugar simply. Sugar makes its good fragrance and taste strong.
