NASUBI is egg-plant,as you know.
if you just find egg-plant in your refrigetator, you can cook at once.
This recipe is good for OTOSAN(=Fathers) after work with beer.
you wash egg-plant, and remove its calyxes. And then cut in a half of lengthways. and one more point is ;to cut its roundness little bit, so the half egg-plant is sitting well at the plate.
So you bake slowly both sides for around 5 minutes in a law heat.
And add to MENTUYU. You know,when you have Soba..
i recomend you,if you like Nasubi,though
Bon-odori means bellow
In towns and villages across the country people in yukata (light cotton kimono) gather for outdoor dances known as bon-odori. For many Japanese, summer wouldn't be summer without a bonodori.
On the top of the Yagura two men are beating japanese drams called Taiko like this. Sounds don don!
very exciting .
People are dancing around Yagura. Again and again.
And one more pleasure for kids are games and eating boothes called Yomise. Yomise means the booth in the evening i guess.
They're definitely holding one coin in their hands tightly from their parents
Yukata was a summer casual kimono those days but nowadays we used to wear at summer festival.
And this is called Obi which is a kind of long and wide belt.
this is butterfly motif
Obi is tied and rolled on the Yukata with variety of design. when we wear kimono or Yukata, we need someone's help acturally.
How do i look? Perfect!!
This design is called Bunko-musubi
And these are Geta. we put it on instead of shoes at Yukata
And NOW luckly i am watching the live broadcast about tenjin festival on TV program with fun.
Yes! he is the person who is performanced as 'Billy's Boot Camp'on DVD .It was very popular in Japan about a couple of years ago. It was a huge booming in our country. Seems everyone is interested in the diet or something in the world.
However the programs are too hard to do exercises for most of Japanese people. So actually we almost gave up his programs and gave up getting beautiful muscle. But now ,surprisingly i heard of that he has opened his own ' International fitness studio' at Osaka in Japan this 19th July. And also he married with japanese female. Wow!! Congratulations!!He lives in Osaka!! Now the boom is becoming again? I guess people would rush into ...I dont know.
I went to the Japanese Movie titled 'Amalfi' which made film in Italy. And you know Amalfi is the World Heritage of Italy. Wow very beautiful!! I was so impressed in the location . The actor is Yuji Oda and actress is Yuki Amami . The song of the movie is 'Time to Say Goodbye' by Salah Brightman. Her voice is pretty clear. Her canzone sounded so gougeous and I felt so so comfortable .
I have no plan for holidays but I prefer to relaxing.
Today I was supposed to go shopping but it started raining at that time. Oops!
However i had a good idea in my brain. I decided to ask for deliver Sushi. and then I called to the Sushi shop. In japan it is available to deliver sushi which we want to have on the telephone easily as Pizza delivery service. And also we usually have sushi at special day as a birthday,hosting guests,gathering friends and so on. So we love sushi so much.
Now here 's Sushi just arrived at home!! Wow I'm happy.
there are 3 people at home today. Sushi bowl can be attached and build up as well.
today i ordered healthy menu here
Inari-sushi and Shiso with ume-boshi plum roll
These are Temaki-sushi. Temaki means roll by ourselves-rolled rice with Nori. this menu for delivery especially children like very much
There are inside of sushi-shrimp,cuttlefish,salmon,tamagoyaki and pickles with shiso leaves.
Now let's roll by myself
It is rapped with film for keeping Nori dried.
Somehow we have rather hot green tea with a big cup at sushi
After we fished ,we wash up sushi bowls and put them in front of the door,and sushi shoppers come to take them another day.
I always send Ochugen to my uncle and relatives and yesterday i got this post-card for thanks.
Does everyone send post-cards ?
These are some post-card and letters for summer greetings which i am prepared to write. Now it is before summer on the calender though.
We used to set up before hot summer .They are kind of traditional Japanese house style. If you visit Kyoto or Nara region,you can find them easily.
It looked so comfortable for me and felt something cool breezing.
How do you feel?
