JPN DAY11: Off to Akita

Off to Akita!
秋田へ!
On the way there we met a parade of school kids,
旅の途中で私たちが出会ったのは、小学生の行列、

hydrangea,
紫陽花、

toy-like puppy,
おもちゃみたいな子犬、

そしてなまはげ

It's been a year, grandpa and grandma!
1年ぶり、おじいちゃん、おばあちゃん!

That night, my grandma prepared us
 the superbly fresh treasures from the sea, and the mountain.
その夜は、おばあちゃんの用意してくれた新鮮な海の幸、山の幸。
Grilled turban shell, salmon roe, bracken Ohitashi, Sashimi from the local ocean, water shield.
Nature makes deliciousness.
サザエのつぼ焼き、ぷりぷりのイクラ、わらびのお浸し、地元の鮮魚のお刺身、じゅんさい。
おいしいものは、自然がつくる。

my grandma goes to the fish market earliest in the morning to get the most fresh fish of the day.
water shield is my favorite plants only grow in the cleanest water. i eat it with a drop of soy sauce!

wish you can try them all, please come to Akita!
