Local Cuisine in Kyushu

Mizutaki or chicken boiled without seasoning (Fukuoka Prefecture)

Fukuoka, the birthplace of mizutaki, is among the prefectures with the highest annual consumption of chicken per household. The origin of unseasoned boiled chicken goes back to the Meiji Era (1868-1912). It first appeared in Hakata in Fukuoka, inspired by the consomme soup of Western dishes and Chinese chicken dishes. It is prepared by cooking chicken and vegetables in chicken stock soup and then it is eaten after dipping it in ponzu sauce (pressed from a bitter orange) and relish such as chopped leek. After the chicken and vegetables are eaten, rice can be cooked in the soup pan to make porridge. The rice soaks up the soup containing the wonderful flavor from the ingredients and is exceptionally tasty.

Japan adopts the green way of the eco-warrior
Daily Mail - Nov 19, 2010

Japan leads the world in technological know-how. And when Japan turns its attention to anything it seems to do it better than anyone else. Take 3D television, digital cameras, cars - take anything, in fact. So when it starts looking into the consequences of environmental change, you might expect the results to be impressive. All the major Japanese companies have made serious commitments to the cause - from Toyota's hybrid Prius, the celebrity's favourite, to Mitsubishi's i-MiEV, currently driven by Birmingham's police force. But few have taken up the baton with such earnest intent as Japan's leading consumer electronics company Panasonic, which has declared its intention to be the number one 'green innovation' company in the electronics industry-by its centenary in 2018.

Nov 13Porn diplomacy? Actress Mariko Kawana, Japanese AV popular in North Korea (Tokyo Reporter)
Diplomatic relations between Japan and its Asian neighbors may now be at a post-World War II low, but, reports weekly tabloid Shukan Asahi Geino (Nov. 11), the popularity of Japanese AV is rising steadily in North Korea. On October 16, the Korean newspaper Chosen Nippo raised concerns about how widespread Japanese AV, that is, adult video, had become in its neighbor to the north. "Porn videos from overseas have high market value, especially those from Japan," explains a resident in a North Korean border town. "Their content may be illegal but the videos are very popular with young people." The tabloid wonders how a nation in which much of the population faces starvation can find an interest in AV, which is ultimately a mere recreation. "It is a fact that the ship Mangyonbon is used to transfer Japanese porn between the two countries," says professor Toshio Miyatsuka of Yamanashi Gakuin University, whose research focuses on North Korea.

Simmered taro is a popular autumn dish / JAPANESE HOME COOKING

Bookmark and Share
SIMMERED YOUNG satoimo, or taro, is a popular autumn dish. "Those that are freshly dug are especially full of flavor," says Japanese cuisine expert Tatsuo Saito.
Since taro continue to grow while in the soil, now is the best time to get them while they are still in bite-size. To make the peeling process easier, Saito suggests using a microwave. It also prevents your hands from becoming itchy. If the seasoning appears strong, he says, "The amount of soy sauce may be reduced by 30 percent and that of mirin by half, but keep the sweetness. The sugar gives a shine to the satoimo."
