The day after the typhoon passed, it was a holiday...since we had been cooped up indoors, we went to the movies and saw a movie that Satoshi was interested in seeing called "Sekigahara"....blood, guts, samurai...

Dessert was at the Babbi kiosk inside Hankyu Department Store...marron glacé & chocolat gelato...bummer that the marron glacé flavor was overpowered by the chocolat...

Dinner was at a sushi shop that Satoshi has been to with some of his baseball alumni...Shigezushi

The owner is such a cute and talkative man...

Some of the items we had we ikura soaked in some shoyu and other seasonings...

Tai (seabream) sashimi.

And hamo (pike eel) fluffy! with the way it was poached. (click on the photo to see the steam rising off of the hamo)

There was also some delicious katsuo (bonito), tender tako (octopus) and some other items, but we were having such a nice time talking story with the owner that I ended up not taking many photos.

Definitely a different experience than the conveyor belt type of sushi places, but I am glad we ate here.

We'll be back.

I saw a write up of that movie and thought if it comes out on dvd with English subtitles, I'll get it. Sounded pretty interesting, especially if it's all blood and gore, hehehe.

A while back, Shirokiya used to bring in marron glaces during Christmas season and I loved them. it was so expensive because the one they sold was marinated in brandy. I'd put the box in the freezer and eat one every several weeks. I've seen the regular ones that just have the glaze in Japan department stores and bought those too, much cheaper!

love places where the owner/manager has time to chat and does so willingly. no turn & burn!

I hope you like the movie V...we should look for marron glace when you visit.

It was definitely a change of pace, Rowena!

Take care you two.
