Buri (Japanese Amberjack) Nigirizushi
Japanese Amberjack is a valuable fish that sustains the life in this small fishing village. But it's valuable only in its season from Feb to early Mar. If they come after that when it's warm, like late Mar. or Apr., their price goes unbelievably down... because they lose good fat and may have some parasitic worms.
So, on Mar. 21st, the whole neighborhood jumped in joy early in the morning with the news of a big catch.
Anyway, it's a relief to know that nature's blessing is still abundant. Here's the blessing in mountainous areas. Bracken fern shoots were abundant this year as in last year and the year before. ;)
And Mar. 25th was my birthday! I baked Ponkan orange pound cake this year. :)
It was also the day that we celebrated the official establishment of our local revitalization project team... well, sort of.
Meanwhile, my buckwheat noodle making skill was in progress. Teammates often bring in their homemade dishes/sweets and turn the class into a small party. ;)
