We had their special menu, ‘Samgyeopsal’ that is a kind of Korean BBQ.
We grilled pork belly by ourselves at our table, and then, we wrapped the grilled pork belly with some leaves.
We are able to have the a lot of kinds of leaves as much as we want.

The Samgyeopsal is very popular food considered as healthy because the extra fat comes off on the griddle, and we have a lot of fresh leaves together.

And, we had ‘a Chige-nabe’ that was a Korean kimuchi hotpot with some rice at the end that made us very full.
We were very happy to have the very good healthy yummy food.

Niigata gifts


I got some gifts of Niigata pref. from my friend.





They are ‘chamame-manju’ (steamed edamame bean-jam bun) and Japanese famous snack, ‘Kaki no Tane’ that is one of my favorite snacks.

Niigata pref. is a major production area of rice. Because of that, Niigata pref. produces a lot of products that are made of rice such as ‘Kaki no Tane’ and ‘senbei ( rice crackers).
Also, ‘chamame’ is one of kinds of Edamame which is mainly cultivated in Niigata.

I really had very good tea time with green tea!
