The phrase itadakimasu (ee-tah-dah-kee-mahss) is said before every meal to annouce that you are going to begin eating and to show appreciation for the preparation of the food. It has become my favorite word to say because every time I say it, I know I am about to feast on some incredible food. Below are just a few of the excellent home cooked dishes I have been sampling.

Unagi (freshwater eel)

Ikura (salmon roe) on daikon.

Pork and potato korokke (croquettes), salad, kabocha (pumpkin soup).


Tempura everything.


Assorted sashimi, caught in the morning off of the Toyama coast, fresh as it gets.
