Had a great time in Japan with all my family. I have more than 20 cousins in Japan and didn’t have much time to meet them all but had a quality time with me parents and my closest cousins. 2年ぶりの日本。二家族で25人のいとこを持つわたしは、みんなに会いたいと思っても今回はちょっと無理でした。。。。兄妹ののように育った雅彦とともチャン家族と楽しい2週間を過ごしました。

Cooked miso soup with prawn. Great Dashi flavour and I can eat everyday x

Also, I have a memory about this soup.

When I was child, I went sushi restaurant with my dad. I was eating prawn sushi. Sushi chef saw me and he thinks I was really enjoying eating prawn then he cooked me prawn head miso soup just for me to service! It was amazing prawn dashi taste and I never forget that lovely memory.

They have been eaten Bread and potatoes for last few days and now their tummy is happy and relax from eating Japanese food.
I felt that I am so grateful continuing having my business for last 7 years when I hear some compliment from our customers.
Thank you!
