This Kaisen-don (assorted raw fish on rice) is from Shimanokaisendonya.
The shop is inside Shimanoshiki which is a local produce market in Itoshima.
When I first moved to Fukuoka, I was surprised Kaisen-don here is often not colorful.
It because they use local fish.
And it is just caught so it is fresh and good.
And often people in Fukuoka use sesame soy sauce.
The miso soup at this restaurant, which contains the bony part of a fish, is also good.
This Kaisen-don (assorted raw fish on rice) is from Okiyo.
It is located in the fresh fish market at the pier in Fukuoka city.
It is fresh and very delicious.
They also have many other types of dishes.
Those are good, too.
It is open from 6 o’clock in the morning for people who work nearby.
On the wall there are many famous people’s signatures.
The other day I ate fried oysters: they were juicy and delicious.
These views are of the Fukuoka City Highways.
I lived in Seattle for one year more than 20 years ago.
Fukuoka seems a little bit like Seattle.
I liked Seattle very much.
There is a sport which is called Sumo in Japan.
Two sumo wrestlers fight in a ring about five meters in diameter.
They fight one match per day for 15 days.
There are 6 tournaments each year.
Sumo wrestlers are separated into ranks: the top rank is Yokozuna.
Nowadays there are many foreign sumo wrestlers, including many from Mongolia.
My daughter won 4 free sumo tickets at a shopping mall, so the other day she went to see the sumo tournament.
This is Gold Castella from Mameya Kanazawa Bankyu.
My friend brought this from Kanazawa Ishikawa.
Kanazawa is the city of gold leaf.
99% of the gold leaf production in Japan is there.
I think the Gold Castella is unique.
Also Nagasaki is famous for Castella.
I like Castella made by Fukusaya.

It is enjoyable to eat many kinds.
One enjoyable thing for many people traveling by train in Japan is eating Ekiben.
I am one of those people too.
Ekiben is station betou.
There are so many kinds, so it is difficult to choose.
A lot of them are pretty, but it is better to not expect too much…
But I like Ekiben.
