There'll be more...

So pretty! We don't really have many cherry blossoms around here, and certainly none of them are out yet. I'll have to keep an eye out for them.

Konnichiwa , Ogenki des ka, I have missed your posts recently, your like my link to Kochi, I have been reading your Kitchen blog with interest, maybe myself and my wife will visit your restaurant when we visit her family in August( I am going to watch the Yosakoi festival again and may even participate for my second time)
I will look for your big yellow smiley face in Harimayabashi, have a wonderful week. Oh I have a new blog now its very new and quite boring but I do like my banner as it shows Kochi Jo and my wife as sadako:) its called Scene.

I think your web page is a beautiful depiction of Japan but as far as I know Obachan means "grandmother" not aunt...

Sorry to correct you Anonymous but Obachan does indeed mean Aunty and I am sure that the Obachan on this site knows more about it than we do seeing as though she is Japanese. I think you may be mistaken as Oba-achan is grandmother as far as I am aware but they may sound similar to our untrained ears, maybe a Japanese reader can clear it up:P I say Obachan=Aunty, Oba-achan=Grandmother

Thank you so much for your comments, guys. Sorry about my late response.

I’m glad you liked the flowers in these photos. I think I heard that there’s a place --- maybe a park?? --- in Pennsylvania where many cherry trees bloom beautifully in spring… but I could be wrong.

Konnichiwa. Ohisashiburi. Genki desuyo.
So nice to hear from you. Yes. Please come to our restaurant when you come to Kochi in August! :D

Thanks for your compliment. As demon explained, obachan and obaachan mean two different things in Japanese, and obaachan is grandmother. But these days I’m feeling much older…I guress I’m getting closer to the “obaachan” stage. ;)

Thanks for your help. ;)
