I just rearranged my plans so I can attend the Yamayaki fire festival in Nara tomorrow!
This morning, I rode out to the Gekkeikan sake brewery.Â I didn’t have a map or any real idea of the address, but I had:
- A rough idea of where it is in the city and what train stations are nearby
- A bicycle
I made it there in about 90 minutes.Â The ride home only took about 40 because I knew where I was going.
But anyway, I know you’ve all been wondering: when is he going to post more photos of food on a stick?? Well, feast your eyes on this feast:
The stuff in the middle is kushikatsu, a regional speciality.Â It’s battered and deep fried food of all sorts.Â From L to R: quail egg, shrimp, beef, Kansai green pepper, chicken.Â The stuff on the left is yakitori, which wasn’t as good as the time I went to Yurakucho.
Kushi means (more or less) “skewered.”Â You’ll love the kanji for it: ä¸².Â Nom!
