We have met many nice people in this country, but my favourite person is still the one who cooked a delicious "renkon" or lotus rhizome (root) dinner on the evening of September 10, 2012. In the Kasumi grocery store on the way home on the 9th Shigeko-San pointed out to Yayoi that the "renkon" was a little cheaper than previously so Yayoi immediately rushed over to get some.
The "natto" is fermented soy beans, the "gohan" is the white rice, the "ocha" is the green tea. In the plate the round vegetable with holes is "renkon", the other vegetable is "nasu" or eggplant and the meat is salted "sake" or salmon.
