Hospital foods in Japan
Hi, everyone!!! Thank you for warm messages and likes!!! 3 days passed after my delivery. I feel good and recovering so fast surprisingly. My baby has huge appetite and sleeps loooong. Today, I want to introduce a little bit about hospital life in Japan.
In Japan, mamas stay at the hospital for 5 or 7 days. It depends on the hospital’s regulations. But if you’re multipara who had natural birth, you stay at the hospital for 5 days. While staying at the hospital, they offer various lectures and programs; how to take care of baby (eating and bathing etc), how to spend at home. My hospital offers extra service including celebration dinner and aroma massage!!!
I personally enjoy the hospital food. Mainly, they serve traditional Japanese cuisine. But it includes the Chinese food and French food. I learn a lot while staying here. What is plus, they even serve snacks around 15:00PM.
Are you interested in hospital food in Japan? I created special section on my Instagram story (https://www.instagram.com/yucasjapanesecooking/). Please check it out!
Welcome to the world!
My baby was born on the 11th of October.
She is 2,598g (weight) and 47.5cm (hight). Healthy little baby girl.
Everything was quick! She was born 11 days earlier from the due date. And it took only 2.5 hours to deliver her!
My husband stayed with me in the same birth room and cheered me up the whole time. Supportive!
I feel deep love and calm at the moment…
10 months pregnant!
10 months pregnant !
The baby is very active…Kicking my belly so hard and stretches so dynamically.
My son was born 10 days earlier last time so I think I need to prepare for this baby born very soon?!
Do you think this baby is boy or girl ?
Special bento box for sports festival
Happy Saturday! 🌞 Another big typhoon No.18 didn’t hit Tokyo this time, so sports festival called “Undou-kai” was held at my son’s kindergarten today.
Usually, Japanese moms wake up earlier (than usual) and prepare special lunch box packed with their kids’ favorite foods. Since this was my first time to prepare this lunch box, I cooked these easy finger foods that my son likes; Inari-zushi, potato croquette, roll sushi with natto (fermented soybeans) and Karaage (Japanese-style fried chicken). I also put fruit jelly, steamed veggie, cheese and caramelized sweet potato as side dishes. 😋

Visiting the Nedu/Nezu shrine
Visited Nedu/Nezu shrine with TAIYAKI !
My father was visiting this week so we went to the local shrine called the Nedu/Nezu shrine.
The shrine was so beautiful for scenery. There are Japanese garden, pond with carps and turtles and red color torii gates! ⛩ Highly recommend!

Taiyaki | Fish shape waffle
Do you know this fish shape waffle? This is called Taiyaki (鯛焼き). “Tai (鯛)” means a carp and “Yaki (焼き)” means stir-fry or bake in Japanese. To make this shape, you need to buy special waffle machine. You can buy online or electric stores here in Japan to make at home or you can find Taiyaki shops at many places here in Japan. Usually, Taiyaki has red bean paste inside but some shops sell custard cream, matcha cream, sweet potato paste, Chocolate cream, Sesame cream etc. In this recipe, I introduce the traditional Taiyaki which has red bean paste inside. Enjoy!
9 months pregnant!
9 months pregnant now. Maybe my tummy is a bit small ?!
Our baby (My family call the baby Bebe-chan!) kicks my stomach a lot all day these days. Sometimes it hurts but that’s one of the precious memory in life.
