unico_1

Unico is one of the cutest unicorn manga charactor, written by Osamu Tezuka.
His heartwarming, pure kindness and cheerful but really pain and sad stories were born in 1976, almost 40 years ago.
The manga is still beloved because of its lovely art and stories.

We had a Japanese dessert, Mitsumame with fruits and ice cream.

The mitsumame usually comes with sweet black syrup that is called Kuromitsu.
I love to pour a small drop of the Kuromitsu onto the Mitsumame before eating.
