It was great to see a gentleman who learned Reiki 3rd degree today. Every time when I teach Reiki, I make sure important attitude to enjoy our lives😊
Bright green Sansho pepper shoots, known as ki no me, growing in the Azuma garden. Not at all spicy, the leaves' heady fragrance and refreshingly citrus-like flavour adds dimension to our dish of bamboo shoot with miso - a perfect dish to enjoy in the spring and summer time.
“Sushi and kaiseki is a man’s world. Even customers expect chefs to be men," said Harumi Mikuni. She is the owner of a women-run restaurant in Tokyo called Tsurutokame. The Kaiseki restaurant was opened to give females the opportunity to become a successful chef – this was previously almost impossible due to Japan’s culture. While most people were uncertain about this risky venture, Tsurutokame has successfully broken boundaries and proved to the world that females can create equally good, or even better Japanese delicacies than men.
