world kindness day

kaki (2) Did you know that Sunday was World Kindness Day? I didn't.

On Monday, I ran into some kindness...a person had a box of persimmons sitting at the front of their house with a note..."please help yourself".

I've not seen this around our neighborhood much, but thought it was nice of them, so I took one.

kaki (3) Another man, who bypassed me while walking had taken three.

kaki (4) The persimmons were quite large.

kaki (5) I think I've said that the savory rice cracker called "kaki no tane", is named so because it resembles the seed of the kaki.

It sort of does.

kaki Peel the skin and take out the seeds.

This one wasn't too sweet but it was a nice treat and a nice act of kindness...Gochisoosama!

I like these that don't need to be on the verge of rotting before you can eat it. Never heard of world kindness day!

Persimmon is a great Autumn food in Japan and very famous in my part of Gifu :)
