Hitsu-mabushi

Hello, it is Tomomi.

The days are getting shorter in Japan.

I think fall is just around the corner.

I like fall because I think food is more delicious and the weather is more comfortable to go out.


The other day, I went to Nagoya.

One enjoyment of travel is to eat local dishes.

Local dishes in Nagoya is called "Nagoya-meshi".

Nagoya-meshi is a Japanese regional cuisine of the city of Nagoya and the surrounding region in central Japan.

It includes "Miso-katsu", "Tebasaki", "Hitsu-mabushi, and so much more.

 

Miso-katsu is deep fried pork cutlets covered in rich miso sauce.

Tebasaki is spicy Nagoya fried chicken wings.

In this post, I will talk about "Hitsu-mabushi" which is one famous Nagoya-meshi.

Hello, it is Tomomi.


August 11th is mountain day.

It is a new national holiday in Japan.

It started from 2016.

It is a day to give thanks to mountains.

It seemed that many mountain climbing events were held that day this year, too.


Though I did not climb a mountain that day, I climbed mountains when I was a child for school events.

I loved the taste when I ate "Onigiri" at the top of the mountain.


In this post, I will talk about Onigiri.
