Nigata prefecture

I went to Nigata prefecture where is my parents hometown. I tried to up date my blog, but the reception was bad there….

My mother`s brother`s family is growing rice Koshihikari. It is so delicious!

They also are growing very fresh sweet corn like we can eat uncooked. I made corn soup and croquettes to them with gratitude.

I always think that farmers work hard everyday for vegetables and rice even day of scorchingly hot or heavy rain. We have to thank for them every time.

Karuizawa

Now I am having an exhibition in Karuizawa Nagano. A first customer was from Saitama prefecture. I could start a wonderful exhibition.

My mother and I were taken to Rooibos tea cafe by my mother`s friend for a lunch. This cafe`s owner was my mother`s friend`s daughter. I often see this lunch dishes on the wab site. Finally I could eat real one for the first time. It was delicious!

Well done!

Blueberry tree in my garden had a lot of berries than usual year in this year on account of a bad harvest last year. It is a small tree, but I can harvested about 1.5kg. Person who has a big blueberry tree thinks ` very few!` . But it was well done for my blueberry. It is pleasant for me to harvest fruits.

Nishimura-coffee

I went to Nishimura-coffee in Mikage after a long time. This shop`s atmosphere was so nice every time I go. I bought some cakes as a souvenir in a cake shop in front of Nishimura-coffee. This shop was running by son of Nishimura-coffee`s president as a patissier. These cakes were so beautiful.

Go for wool and come home shorn

There were antique shops next to the gallery of Umeda Hankyu department store. When my father held his exhibition, he often disappered to there. I always said to him `DO not buy anything!`. He listened my words or not….

In the last day of the exhibition, He told me `There is a good old Imari.`

` NO NO!……But I want to see it if it is so good`. I went to there. Uuuu…Actually good one. And it was reasonable. The moment when a store staff said `I try to discount it`. I said ` I wolud like to take it!` . Go for wool and come home shorn…. Oh well … It was good to get good old Imari. Can it really be so…??

Pan cake

I was taken a pan cake cafe by my customer. There were two other my customers and my mom too. As I heard it, we had to wait for about 30 minutes.

But I was not bored by fun chatting.  It was worth waiting!A very soft cake  disappered in my mouth. It looked too big for me. But I could eat up. The garnish was duck meat with cream cheese and honey sauce. It was also delicious!We ordered by one dish individually and one dish for dessert. I was so full!We had a wonderful time like forgot about time!

I was so happy to build a good relationship with customers. Thank you so much for always!
