Today’s Breakfast / Onigiri

Sep. 1, 2017 I made onigiri for breakfast. Onigiri is also called omusubi. When I hear the word ‘omusubi’ I think of a Japanese fairy tale, Omusubi Kororin (English: The Rolling Rice Ball).

Today’s Preparation for a Festival

Aug. 25, 2017 I was making poi scoopers for a goldfish scooping game. Children will play the game at a local festival in my neighborhood. The poi paper can break easily when soaked in water.

Today’s Fireworks

Aug. 23, 2017 I suppose many Japanese see fireworks every summer. The other day I watched a great fireworks display on TV, and in this evening I saw smaller fireworks at a summer festival.
