Soba restaurant "Kyobuan"
I was born in summer, so I like hot summers and the sceneries of summer. I like sunflowers very much because it seems to give me the energy to keep up with the summer heat.You can have a meal while watching such a summer view at Soba noddle restaurant "Kyobuan".Their natto mochi and soba noodles are really delicious.There is a sunflower field at the back of the store, and you can also enjoy watching them from inside seats and outdoor terrace seats.My stomach rumbled just at lunchtime, so I went to "Kyobuan" with excitement.And I was looking forward to seeing their sunflowers but they are already gone.So I asked the staff about the flowers."It was the best time to see them the week before last The week."Oh no...The owner and the staff said, "They bloomed like this for this year."And showed me the pictures of the sunflowers.Straighten up to the sun.Wow, it's so beautiful, and there is a path through the sunflower field. It would be fantastic to walk there.I missed the best time to see sunflowers.But I don't miss Kyobuan's delicious soba (lol).I had a "cold oroshi soba noodles with fried natto mochi" for this time.Oroshi meens "grinded daikon radish".And Natto is fermented soybeans and mochi is rice cake.As it was a hot day, the cold soda was the best choice.It is delicious eaten as it is, but it is also good to dip it in the soba broth!It was very delicious.I heard that sunflower seeds will be harvested properly and planted next year as well.Actually, this field will become a field of cosmos.I look forward to autumn as well.I missed the best time to see the sunflower field.Don't miss the taste of Kyobuan.Cold soba is ready to eat!◎ Natto Mochi and Soba Kyoubuanhttp://www.keihoku-m.com/kyoubuan_top.html
Colorful summer vegetables
The muggy days of the rainy season continue.The rainy season makes me no appetite, and tired.I heard that when the air pressure drops, the parasympathetic nervous system becomes dominant and make us feel sleepy, sluggish and stressed.We should sleep and eat well in order to overcome the rainy season. How about eating fresh summer vegetables? At this time, there are a lot of delicious summer vegetables at Woody Keihoku. I love summer vegetables, so I often go shopping there.I love eating fresh tomatoes. Also, I make tomato sherbet with honey, it's so yummy.Peeling off tomatoes in a hot water and freeze them, then put them in a food processor.It's very easy to make.They have zucchinis, eggplants, pumpkins and many kinds of vegetables.Those vegetables are carefully made by farmers in Keihoku.There is a new cashier in Woody Keihoku.It's semiauto and easy to use.We often see them in supermarkets recently. If you're not sure how to use, ask the staff of Woody Keihoku.Why don't you try Keihoku summer vegetables and stay healthy during the rainy season?------------Woody Keihoku1 -1 Kamiterada, Keihoku-Shuzan-cho, Ukyo-ku, Kyoto City postal code 601-0251Phone & Fax: 075-852-1700Open: 9: 00 a.m. - 6: 00 p.m.Closed: New Year holidayshttps://fuw.jp/woody/
Keihoku special soft serve
It gets humid in the rainy season.When I was walking on the street in the downtown in Keihoku.I heard local grandmas are chatting.Grandma A"It's humid today. I want to have ice cream or something."Grandma B"Yes, it's a good idea!"I was going to be a grandma C and join their chat saying "Yes, I want to eat them too!!".But I didn't talk to them.The chat made me want to have something cold and sweet. So I went to Woody Keihoku to get local special soft serve.They have many varieties for flavors such as miso and Kyo-tona(Kyoto local leaf vegetable), pumpkin, azuki red bean, sake-kasu, Kuromoji (special aroma Tree), melon.Soft serves are used local ingredients for flavor like a vegetable. I chose Kyo-tona(Kyoto local leaf vegetable) taste.I thought it tastes "kind green" but it was pretty good.It's sweet and refreshing.I had the soft serve in a resting room with a bear in Woody Keihoku.It's nice to try the unique taste soft serve.Why don't you try them at Woody Keihoku opens at 10 am - 6 pm.Soft serves serving until 5 pm.https://fuw.jp/woody/

Keihoku Craft Series ⑤ "GENTA YASUI ART LAB."
I introduced Keihoku Atelier crawl in this blog before, so I visited an atelier while the event period.The atelier I visited is Genta Yasui Art LAB. Mr. Yasui's original artworks were exhibited in the atelier. You can see the graphics resin that drawn on acrylic. I was getting into his mysterious art world. ??What do you think these are? Actually, these are rings.Wait, all shapes are not ring. Can I call them ring?They are completely beyond the concept of my image of rings.I thought these are uncomfortable to wear.So I tried one of them.!"wow! it is pretty comfortable!"I asked him how it can be so comfortable even this strange shape."I make these rings based on anatomy" he answered.Well, that's why I feel comfortable.Moreover, when the rings are not worn, it is also cool as a room ornament. These skulls are also rings.Honesty, skulls are not my type, they are kinda scary for me.But Mr. Yasui's skulls are beautiful somehow. Maybe because of anatomy based work. Such a cute piece too. Mr. Yasui focuses on capturing the beauty in the dark and expressing it into his artwork. This is Mr. Yasui with his daughter.He works not only with jewelry and artworks but also with collaboration with local artisans.By the way, on this day I asked him to adjust my wedding ring.He is very friendly, so please feel free to contact him.He would make something beyond your imagination.-----------YASUI GENTA ART LAB.http://gentayasui.com/
Keihoku's Bakeries - part 1 "Tanaka Mise"
Everyone, do you like bread?Kyoto city is ranked 2nd in the ranking of bread consumption in Japan.So there are numbers of bakeries in Kyoto that 2nd most many in Japan. I'm from Kyoto so I love breads. Of course there are delicious bakeries in Keihoku, too! (Keihoku is in Kyoto city) I would like to introduce "Tanaka Mise" today. Ms. Tanaka has started the bakery 13 years ago.She says "I make breads for everyone's daily use. They are not for the special occasions, for the everyday life. "She showed me how she makes her breads. Did you know that you can hear the sound from freshly baked bread? I could hear the sounds of the French bread just got out from the oven. Smalls soo good!! Tanaka Mise does not have a thier shop, you can buy their breads in supermarket "Sandaiko" , "Woody Keihoku" and "Sakigake center" only.They change bread menu sometimes.They have standard breads menu, baker's special menu and seasonal menu. I always look forward to try new breads. Recent my favorite bread is maple walnut whip cream. I love this sweet flavor of maple and the crunchiness of walnuts. It's the best much.I buy this bread every time when I see it in the shop. Try Tanaka Mise bread when you come to Keihoku.------------------Tanaka Mise https://www.tanakamise.jp/E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
