Cherry blossoms (桜)

One of the most beautiful season is Japan is cherry blossoms season, 
from the late part of March through the beginning of April.

During that period, you can enjoy beautiful cherry blossoms and fresh green 
everywhere in Japan.

  

 


Japanese like Cherry blossoms very much. Why?

One reason is that we are considered a symbol of the beginning of new life.

For children starting school and graduates starting new job, April cherry blossoms 
suggest a bright future.

  


Another reason is Japanese aesthetic sensibility that attaches a high value to ephemeral 
beauty.

Cherry blossoms in full bloom that last only several days become all the more attractive 
for their transience.

Fugu, blow fish (河豚)

Japanese like fugu sashimi.

Fugu is blow fish, some types contain tetrodotoxin, and it is a thousand times more 
toxic than potassium cyanide.

Therefore, certification and notification is required to clean and sell it.
So why risk your life? The answer is simple – the taste.

Fugu is chewy so as sashimi, it’s cut so thin it’s transparent.

 

Pieces are spread out like beautiful petals, and a few pieces are eaten at time 
with condiments and ponzu.
One bite of the delicate yet rich flavor will addict you.
Fugu hot pot in winter is supreme it’s made by boiling scraps and bones with 
vegetable in stock.
It’s flavored and enjoyed with ponzu.

After eating the ingredients, add rice for final delicious porridge.

Yobuko Squid (呼子のイカ)

Yobuko is famous for fresh Yobuko Squid, transparent in body 
and firm in texture.

The squid has a sweetness that melt upon the tangue. 
In the finely crafted style of sashimi known as Ikezukuri, the flesh of 
still-living seafood is served.

The freshness is outstanding in fact, flesh is usually still twitching while 
served up on the plate.

Ema (絵馬)

Ema is small pentagon-shaped wooden plaque dedicate to 
Shrine and Temple.

  


One side of the plaque usually has a picture of horse or the 
animal representing the zodiac sigh of that year.
On the other side, which is blank, people write their wishes 
for wide variety of things, then hang the Ema up the certain 
places in the Shrine or Temple.
The custom originally came from wealthy people’s practice 
of offering real horses when they made wishes.
Eventually, this turned into the tradition of giving pictures of 
horse, as donating real horses became too much of financial 
strain.
