It was raining weakly, and the green leaves and some flowers looked
clearly.   Especially many mushrooms in the Honmaru laon area were small and so cute.

It’s a rainy season in Japan and also a season of “Sansai” or edible wild plants.

My brother who lives in Yamagata prefecture (northeast part of Japan) got “Hosodake” a kind of edible wild plants in his near mountain, and sent me some of them. “Hosodake” hunting isn’t a easy job, because “Hosodake” is usually grow up in a hurd place.  I cooked “Hosodake” as a miso soup. It was so tasty.  I hope guests to Japan enjoy the season event of our nation.

TFWT’s regular walking tour is held on Saturdays 13:00-15:00.
