Japanese apricot "Ume"festival in Mikasa City, Sorachi!
Thank you very much for visiting this blog site, giving me comments and responding to the quiz !
I will post the quiz of the month in the middle of coming June. It may be as difficult as the quiz in May for expatriates in Hokkaido but I
will post enough information to reach the right answer as well.
Everybody is enjoying this beautiful season in Hokkaido?
Japanese Apricot Festival "Ume Matsuri " was held in Mikasa City on May 20(Sun.).
The sun is shining. I felt good with my wife and her mother.
But many trees of apricot and cherry are damaged by the heavy snow that attacted this area harshly.
Have you eaten Petasites japonicus
"FUKI" in Japan? It is used as a kind of herb in some country. I took some fuki in spring and enjoy the peculiar smell and bitter taste every spring as well as bamboo shoots.
I will post how to cook fuki and bamboo shoots in Japan!
By the way, the indian curry restaurant in Iwamizawa City "Bombay Blue " that Andy from the
United Kingdom introduced on this blog previously set their stand in the venue of the festival.
And what surprized me in the venue of the festival is Chilean restaurant and the sparerib they provided.
Its salsa of chile was so nice with the volume of porksteak. I am not sure in which city the restaurant named MOAI is entertaining people.
I will go the restaurant once a month
at least. Even for the people born introvert, the atmosphere of the South America makes them extrovert for some time.
I am eager to have the sparerib of restaurant MOAI!
