found cute little eatery in neiborhood.

Having saba fish teishoku (lunch set) with genmai rice, miso soup,and pickles. One of my favorite kinda meals.Japanese home cooking.They also serve green maccha or genmai tea.If I have room, I'll try their Japanese dessert....This place is so cute.While eating, an old woman came by to pick up just some genmai rice and the cook and her discussed how to freeze it if she couldn't finish it; an old man dropped by even though he already ate to say hi and discuss his health; the cook was very busy and explained her helper was out making kusamochi (trad.dessert) b/c they had rec'd fresh yomogi (plant used for ingredients). I sense this tiny place truly takes care of the neighborhood by serving healthy food and providing a relaxing space.Beautiful.

Wow, that sounds so nice! I live in the Netherlands, so no cute Japanese eateries here (well, they're probably around, but not in my neighbourhood) I've been reading your blog for a while now, it's so cool to read about your daily life in Japan! Keep it up,
