[culture] Taiko and Mikoshi

Today, there was a small Matsuri(a kind of festivals) in my town. We often have Matsuris in this season.

Taiko players beat Matsuri rhythms, and people marched with the Mikoshi on their shoulders.

Playing Taikos (two players beat a big Taiko)

[food] Shabu-shabu

Do you know "Shabu-shabu" ?
It's a kind of hot pot with thin sliced beef, very delicious ;) but expensive :-<. Yesterday, we went to "Mi-mi-u" to eat Shabu-shabu. It's so wonderful night ;).

At first, you put the vesitables into the hot-spot.

Do you notice the spoon was made with shell and carots are cut as the flower shape?

Then, put the beaf and keep it in the soup while it's boided. You can adjust it between rare and welldone as you like.

The beaf is "Shimo-huri". "Shimo-huri" means "covered with frost".
In this case, "frost" means grease (lard? suet? fat?) .
It's soft, sweet ...., realy good. the fault is it's expensive :-<.

You may think it's not good for your health. I agree with you. You shouldn't eat so many slices... if you can stop it;).

The name of the restrant is "Mi-mi-u". "Mi" means "beatiful". and "u" means "rabbit". So the rabbits are used in some dishes.
