Sukiyaki

Restaurant “Shabu Shabu Sukiyaki Aki” in Hyogo.  You can dine on expensive meat from a single serving hot pot.

“Shabu Shabu Sukiyaki Aki” is located in a high class residential area in Nishinomiya city in Hyogo.
It’s only a 3 minute walk from Kurakuenguchi station on Hankyu Line.
This place is a “Hitori Nabe” speciality shop. In Japanese “Hitori" means one person, “Nabe” means hotpot, so literally “Hitori Nabe” means a one person table top hot pot. Usually “Nabe” (hotpot) is enjoyed by many people who share together. At this place you can come and enjoy high grade domestic meat even on your own. That means you can enjoy a hotpot at your own pace without worrying others! It is super popular right now!

Lake Biwa in Shiga ~Go on excursion of the lake district~

For six months after October, “The culture of water” campaign will take place in Shiga, especially around lake Biwa.
Before the campaign starts, I decided to visit the eastern and northern sides of lake Biwa. The themes of my excursions are “water and life”, “water and prayer”, and “water and food”.
I walked around, talk to locals, and ate local cuisine to re-discover the charm of this beautiful area and “The culture of water”.
