to the south, Biwako & rabbits


To Otsu in Biwa lake off Kyoto,
with my parents on Golden Week holidays.
GW中の両親とともに、
京都からすこし外れた琵琶湖大津へ。







simple and light, and a bit of worn-off,
charming color of this city.
素朴で淡く、少しくたびれたこの町の色は素敵。



近所の小川酒店にて地酒をあれこれと見繕って、いざ出発。
Shopping at local Ogawa sake store. let's go then.






Mio shrine, a shrine worship rabbits. 
rabbits all over the place.
there is a big event tomorrow at this place, since it is rabbit's year this year.
ここはウサギを奉った三尾神社。
境内の至る所に、兎ちゃん。
今年は兎年なので、一大イベントが明日にあるのだそう。


We tasted Furousen, Yamahai Junmai Ginjo Nama Genshu 2010BY before visiting the shrine.
the Sake rice is Wataribune from Shiga prefecture, 
very well-developed and deep structures from its acid and Yamahai production method,
more you taste, this sake gets more and more beautiful.

先程購入した、不老泉の山廃純吟生原酒21BYを参拝前にいただく。
お米は滋賀産渡船。ふくよかな酸と山廃の奥行き、飲む毎に、綺麗になるお酒でした。 




lovely parents.
素敵な両親です。
