May 20th, we had "Japanese traditional cooking experience" in our lounge room!
This time, we cook "Ohagi".

Ohagi is a rice cake covered with bean jam or soybean flour, or sesame and salt,
not like "mochi (rice cake)", ohagi is half-smashed rice cake.
It is easier than cooking Mochi.

First, we grain sesame!
It is really hard work!




Then smashed rice to make them little bit sticky!




Roll them to ball, roll into the soybean flour or sesame powder!





Looking very good!




Right now, Sumo wrestling match is on!
Eating Ohagi and watching sumo, very Japanese!

今回は久々のプチ贅沢シリーズです。
京都 河原町丸太町の近くにある江戸前寿司のお店 ”深川龍丈”をに行ってきました。
夜は7,000円でおまかせ10カンのお寿司をいただくことができます。
1カンずつでてくるお寿司はすべてこだわりぬいたものです。
お寿司ってここまでおいしかった?と思うほどです。

I went to fine Sushi restaurant called "Fukagawa Ryuji".
This restaurant has only 8 seats counter style authentic Sushi restaurant.
It costs basically 7000JPY/person for 10 pieces of very fine Sushi.
They are all so good. I just can not tell how good they are. You must try.
Another good things about this restaurant, there is a apprentice of Sushi chef,
He speaks English, French very well and explain everything about food in English or French.

今日は先月滋賀県の大津にオープンした町家の宿 ”粋世”をご紹介します。

粋世は元お米屋さんだったところを宿にリフォームしたB&B(ベッド&ブレックファースト)です。 築90年の建物はきれいにリフォームされており、部屋も清潔感と高級感に溢れています。 1階の朝食を食べるラウンジはきれいな中庭を望むことができ最高です。

Today I would like to introduce B & B (Bed & Breakfast) called Inase in Otsu.
Inase just opened in last month and 90 years old house has been fully renovated.

It is located 20 min on foot from JR Otsu station, also less than 10 min from Keihan HamaOtsu station. Walking distance to Lake Biwa and city center.

In the house, there are several beautiful guest rooms and common lounge with Japanese garden. Also everything is greatly organized and amazingly beautiful !









大津での宿をお探しの方は是非チェックしてみてください。

It takes only 10min by JR train from Kyoto.
You can check more about Inase.

It was a changeable weather including fair/cloudy/drizzling/thunderous on 18th around Tokyo area, but we could go on to our Asakusa tour!




お決まりの、「どじょう料理屋さんの前で、いい香りを堪能」の図。

こちらの彼は、あまり良くないお告げだったので、ここに結んで帰りましたよ。

His one was a bad luck, so he tied it away.

Hello!
こんにちは!

The one of the best seasons for trekking just came!
It is nice to trek on the natural trail around Mt.Fuji area in Spring.
There are many fascinating trails among Mt.Fuji and Fuji Five Lakes area.
I have already trekked many of them.
However, There are still many other trails I have not trekked.

山歩きするにもってこいの季節が来ましたね~!
今まで富士山周辺の素晴らしい登山道をいろいろ歩いてきましたが、まだまだ行ったことのない所もたくさんあります。



So, I implemented to trek on the one of the fascinating but also challenging trail on my days off.
そこで、休日を利用してかねてより歩いてみたかった登山道を歩いてきましたよ~。

At first, I took the first Fujikyu train at Kawaguchiko station and transfer to JR Chuo Line at Otsuki Station.
Then, I arrived at Sasago station where is the starting point.

まずは、朝一の電車に乗り大月駅へ行き、中央本線に乗り換え、笹子駅で下車します。


The following map is my trekking plan.
I tried to across mountains including Mt.Mitsutoge to reach Lake Kawaguchiko and K's House Mt.Fuji!!
The total distance is nearby 20 kilometers and the vertical diference is around 1200 meters.

今回の計画は、ここより山を登り、縦走し、河口湖のケイズハウスMt.富士まで歩いて向かいます!!
距離は大体20キロ、高低差はおおよそ1200メートルです。

I started to trek just before 7:00am and got to the trail head in 10 minutes.
The steep trail was waiting for me.

7時前に笹子駅前から歩き始め、10分足らずで登山道の起点に到着。

On the way to reach mountain ridge, many tender green leaves can be seen this season. Some pylons are standing on the trails.
今の時期は尾根の稜線に出るまでの道中、若葉の新緑を楽しめますよ~。鉄塔が所々に立っています。


I got to mountain ridge in around 1.5 hour. But Mt.Fuji was still not seen.
約1時間半後、尾根に出ましたが、まだ富士山は望めませんね~。

The mountain ridge trail is going Mt.Honjagamaru and Mt.Mitsutoge. It is easy walking to Mt.Honjagamaru on that trail and nice to see the landscape.
尾根道は本社ヶ丸という山を経由し三つ峠山まで通じています。本社ヶ丸へ続く道は散歩道のような感じで周りの景色も堪能できますよ~。


Then, the first Mt.Fuji view was shown up quite quickly!!

程なくして、富士山発見!!


When I reached Mt.Honjagamaru, even a part of Lake Kawaguchiko was also seen not only Mt.Fuji!!
本社ヶ丸では河口湖もほんの一部ですが見れました!!


Keep going and passing through Mt.Seihachi(Good view point as well!).
清八山を越えて更に歩き続けます。


Then, some broadcast buildings and aerials were seen on the top of Mt.Mitsutoge.
そうすると、三つ峠山の頂上に立つ電波塔や中継基地が見えてきます。


I got to the summit of Mt.Mitsutoge!!
三つ峠山到着!!


Beautiful landscapes from Mt.Mitsutoge always attract to the people!!

三つ峠山から見える景色はいつの時代も人々を魅了しますね!!



Mt.Mitsutoge is also popular for rock-climbing.
三つ峠山はロッククライミングでも有名です。


Haha-no-shirataki waterfall can be seen on the descenting trails goes to Kawaguchi Asama Shrine.
河口浅間神社へ下る道中では母の白滝も見る事が出来ます。


Finally, I arrived at Lake Kawaguchiko and K's House Mt.Fuji at 14:20pm!! It was a bit early to check in ;)
そしてついに河口湖、ケイズハウスMt.富士に到着!!時間は14時20分!!ちょっとチェックインには早かったですね~。


I immediately went to Onsen to relax after long trekking! It was really nice day off!!
その後すぐさま温泉に向かったのは言うまでもありません!素晴らしい1日でした!!
