Amazake

Categorised in: , | Link of this article

Amazake (甘酒) comes in two types: one made from sake lees, as the name sake implies, and the other made from rice malt. The amazake introduced here is the latter type, based on rice malt. This type of amazake also has a medicinal role and is recommended when you feel tired or want to prevent colds. Amazake also contains dietary fiber and oligosaccharides, which help regulate the intestinal environment.

Plum Syrup & Juice

Categorised in: , | Link of this article

This is the time of year when plums are available in large quantities, so why not prepare plum syrup for the coming summer heat?

The general practice is to take the heck out of each plum that is still green, but if you want to take it a little easier and quicker, we recommend making it from frozen yellowed plums. The finished ume syrup can be mixed with water or soda water to make ume juice, with soy milk or black tea, or with honey or vinegar to make ume dressing.

Tokyo Guide : Adachi Market (足立市場)

Categorised in: | Link of this article

Speaking of markets in Tokyo, the Tsukiji and Tsukiji Outside Markets, which have been relocated to Toyosu, are famous for the fresh fish you can buy and the Shokudo (cafeterias) where you can enjoy a breakfast or lunch. On par with the Tsukiji Market is the lesser-known Adachi Market, the Tokyo Metropolitan Wholesale Market, located in Senjuhashido-cho, Adachi-ku, Tokyo. Supplying mainly fresh marine products, it is the kitchen of Tokyo.

Adachi Market is small for a central wholesale market, with approximately 42,000 m2 of land, which is the only market in Tokyo specializing in marine products, and offers a wide range of products such as fresh and delicious fish as well as vegetables and Japanese omelettes (Tamagoyaki). In addition, just like Tsukiji, several cafeterias offer delicious gourmet food for breakfast and lunch. It is not well known, so it is a good place to visit without worrying about crowds.

The name of this dish “Kinpira” came from the Japan’s old story. The main character Kinpira was strong and courageous man, so Kinpira represents strong and courageous in Japan. “Gobo” is a root vegetable called burdock in English and has lots of fiber.
