Electric toothbrush /電動歯ブラシ

Once I started using it…damn!! it’s quite nice isn’t it?  It made my daily tooth cleaning routine change.

The electric toothbrush/電動歯ブラシ(でんどうはぶらし) that I bought at “Awesome Store” was just awesome💛  Small, easy to use,  and I can totally expect that my dental hygine will be improved by using it.

I think my old toothbrushes have to go now.

It’s being raining …

They say we have rain everyday in Tokyo since August 1st.

It’s half of this month despite this is not the rainy season!

I had plans to visit some museums to receive appreciation of art, but … I decided I didn’t want to get wet.

Kamaboko かまぼこ

Kamaboko・かまぼこ is steamed fish paste or fish sausage so to speak.  Looking like this↓(photo; LEFT) when you buy it,  it is attached to a little wooded board.  When you eat, you slice peaces from the wooden board.

Japanese eat kamaboko with noodles such as udon・うどん or we prefer to have this food as one of a new year dish.  Sometimes, you find it in chinese dishes and it is also delicious when you eat it as it is with some say sauce and a little bit of wasabi!

Ama zake あまざけ

Ama zake 甘酒・あまざけ is…  a sweet alcoholic drink made from fermented rice.

It is sake but usually nonalcoholic or slightly alcoholic and it has sweet taste but it usually contents no sugar.

As a “SAKE navigator”,  I recommend you to drink ama zake especially during hot and humid summer in Japan because ama zake is called “summer energy drink” and prevent getting sick from heat.
