For from July 19 to August 7, the Japanese is crazy about an eel.It is an eel concerto.Doyo No Ushi No Hi is Midsummer Day of the Ox.It is customary for Japanese to eat an eel on the Ox day during doyo of summer, in order to take nourishment and overcome the heat.The eel is the ingredients which are indispensable to Japanese food.
It is autumn in the season of the eel.However, it became a custom to eat in summer by one man.His name is Gennai Hiraga.He is an inventor and is a producer.He coined the catchphrase “Today is Midsummer Day of the Ox” for an eel shop that suffered slow sales in summer, whereby the custom of ‘eating an eel on Midsummer Day to prevent tiredness from the summer heat’ began.

Maki-e is a traditional Japanese technique of decorating lacquerware by sprinkling gold dust particles over wet lacquer designs.Maki-e is the technique of Japanese lacquer art.Makie is to common peple like a flower on lofty heights.I don’t thought about eating Japanese food with a container of Maki-e.Mostly an art museum or the house of the rich people has Maki-e.Maki-e is a symbol of the rich people.
Japan is a country of the gluttony.The convenience store is open in every place if we go out, and we get anything.It is only some people to eat Japanese food.Most people eat junk food willingly.Hamburger, fried chicken, French fries, cola.
In late years a campaign that change such eating habits starts.It is Food Education campaign in Japan.This is symbolic comic of the campaign.Its comic is Mr.Genmai’s bento.Speaking of a campaign, radical thought is often reflected, but this comics are unrelated to the radical thought.
Mr.Genmai is an instructor in agriculture at a university.He does an odd lecture to convey joy to eat.The university student is attracted by an odd lecture, and they learn joy to eat.I read this comic and learned importance to eat.It is to live to eat.
In Japan, it is populär recently to put a stupid act photo using the equipment of the restaurant onto Twitter.I am at a loss in using the equipment of the shop even if a shop is clean.Therefore I always carries my chopsticks.But it obstructive when the chopsticks can be in the bag.Therefore I carry portable chopsticks.This is very convenient.Please use the portable chopsticks if you eat Japanese food in whereabouts.
Japan was deflation for a long time.I was able to eat the beef bowl which was a symbol of the deflation for $ 2.However, Japan is going to get rid of deflation by Abenomics effect now.Therefore I must buy an expensive bento.I, who am poor, cannot afford it.Though it is a Japanese, not to be able to buy the lunch which is Japanese food!
Half price bento
In the Japanese supermarket, they perform a half price sale just before closing a shop.The battle of the half price bento is described in this manga.They aim at the time when a half price sale is performed.And they scramble for a half price bento.
The chief character is a boy of the high school student.He is devoted to the battle of the half price bento in his youth.I knew a youth devoted to baseball and soccer in the youth, but I did not know a youth devoted to a half price lunch battle.Because it is a very rare story, please read.
It gradually becomes popular now in Japan.It is USB lunch Box.The conventional lunch box is cold.The lunch box called the thermal lunchpail was born.However, it is big and is hard to carry it.Therefore Japanese improved it, and a USB lunch box was born.I am surprised at their passion for food.

Genmai professor’s bento
A chief character is a professor called Genmai.His creed is ‘Eating is to live.’.He teaches the meaning of eating, the importance of eating.You can understand the issue of meal of Japan when you read this manga.
Change of the thought
My child was born several years ago.I am curious about eating after my child was born.In such a case, I read this comic.That is very useful for me.I can take the lecture of the genmai professor at home even if I do not matriculate.It is an analog Internet lecture.
When I serve a lunch, it is hard to serve a juicy side dish.They(side dish) conspired with each other against me.I always have thought that I wanted to divide them.I support them and want to let them become independent.Therefore I decided to supply them with a weapon.The weapon is superior with a product made in Japan.It is ‘Side dish case on bento’.They become independent with ‘Side dish case on bento’.titter; hee-hee,That is all exactly as I remember.Start revolutions simultaneously all over Japanese food.
When you opened the bento box you will grow happy.It is because Tako sausage is in the bento box.At the home in Japan, they perform the decorations of a bento.They enjoy the cooking process very much.OK, let’s cook Tako sausage.
I am interested in UMA and UFO, OOPARTS.I am excited very much when I hear these stories.Do you know Unidentified Mysterious object called ‘Baran’?It is a green object mainly and very thin.The thinness almost as same as a condom.
I’m sorry. It was exaggerated.Baran is not UFO and UMA and OOPARTS.We put the baran in a lunch box.Baran is used for partitioning or decoration.It is a tool used frequently with the Japanese food.When you buy a bento at a Japanese convenience store, you can see it by all means.The word origin of the baran is because the plant called the aspidistra was used in old days.The aspidistra is called “Haran” in Japan.”Haran”→”Baran”.

Hello, everybody.How are you?I’m fine.Do you know Bento, everybody?Bento is lunch box.Japanese name is bento.The Japanese comics that let the bento and magic fuse are Magical chef’s girl Shizuru.How did it fuse?The bento and magic are impossible combinations.Therefore it is the comics which does not think that it is sane.

Generally speaking,we avoid foods of carbs for diet,but it is an error in our understanding. Carbs are important to keep the balance of calories-in.Because the rice is filling,we prevent from eating between meals.
Anyway,the Chinese cabbage is low-calorie.The Chinese cabbage contains substances that protect against obesity.
The saury kabayaki is low-calorie,the taste is rich.Therefore a feeling of full stomach is got.
