What a feast!

That's how the table looked like when we where invited recently by friends in Kitakami. We managed to finish almost everything. But I have to admit that we where ten persons altogether.

All-time family favorite food: Okonomiyaki!

... at the Dotonbori-Restaurant in Kitakami (near the Loc Town Shopping Center). It's all about preparing it yourself!              
So yummy!
(although it has nothing in common with the esthetical principles and rules practised with other japanese dishes)

Summer in the Tohoku forests

The White Lily, Kitakami's city flower -  symbolizing the growth of thecity with its clean beauty and strong life force. This one is growing in the Michinoku Folklore Village . They are now everywhere in the forests, filling the air with their sweet, almost heavy perfume.
