Visited Rikugien to see autumn leaves.
Rikugien Garden is a traditional Japanese garden and Tokyo metropolitan park in Bunkyo-ku (one of the 23rd districts in Tokyo). The name of Rikugien means Garden is Six Principles of Poetry. This garden was specified as a special place of scenic beauty by the Japanese government in 1953.
This place is the closest from my house, so my family and I love to go there some times. We brought onigiri from home and enjoyed lunch time there.

Omiyamairi (First time to visit local shrine)

Categorised in: | Link of this article

First time to visit local shrine with Sui.
One month later after the baby’s birth, parents and grand parents all go to the shrine in Japan.
It is called the “Omiyamairi”.

Omiyamairi literally means “a visit to a shrine.” Omiyamairi is a Shinto ritual similar to the Christian baptism ceremony. It occurs when the baby is about one month old. Some parents choose to visit the famous shrine which is normally a bit far, but my family chose our local shrine.

During this event, babies usually wear a special white clothes for the ceremony, and have a special kimono draped over them. As the baby’s grandparents hold them, the priest presents the news of the birth to the guardian spirit of the shrine, and offers thanks. He then asks the spirit to protect the baby and keep them healthy.

These days, mothers also hold babies and take a picture as for memory. I could take photos of two kinds kimono. So happy to meet our parents from Fukushima and Fukuoka. One of the memorial day!

Kimpira gobo | Stir-fry burdock

Categorised in: | Link of this article

Kimpira gobo is traditional Japanese home meal. “Kimpira” came from the Japan’s old story. The main character Kimpira was strong and courageous man,¬†so Kimpira represents strong and courageous in Japan. “Gobo” is a root vegetable called burdock in English¬†and¬†has lots of fiber. For¬†cooking,¬†Kimpira¬†means¬†a stir-fried veggie dish seasoned with say sauce, mirin, sake and sugar. Kimpira gobo is cooked with burdock only but¬†we use carrot quite often. I usually¬†slice¬†the¬†veggies like sharpening pencils. But you can cut veggies into various sizes and shapes. When I feel like biting chunks, I cut them into big pieces. I want to eat this dish everyday. I hope you enjoy this simple and easy dish!
