What do I eat in San Jose/ Japanese

When I live in the United States, and approximately one month passes, I want to eat Japanese foods so badly.There is even the person eating only Japanese foods.The difference in food culture is big for a person living abroad.

However, the materials for Japanese foods can prepare anything in San Jose.

The sushi to buy in a supermarket is different in something.Sticky rice is used, and laver is wound up inside.No good!

The dish which a Japanese cook cooks is delicious fantastically.I could eat delicious sushi in the inland city such as Memphis.The Japanese foods take root in the American society as high-grade dish.

When I  get tired of eating out, finally  I challenge for cooking food for myself.The Japanese representative dish, the spitted cutlet cooked by a co-worker. I felt that homesickness came.

The oden is a dish necessary in winter.

Only a Japanese will understand the taste of the Japanese radish which the taste soaked into.

This is Nikujaga to be able to easily cook relatively.I made it with a potato and beef from the United States.

The curry - rice are one of the dishes which a Japanese likes most.Why is the color of the curry is not good?

I love the okonomiyaki, too.

However, I sometimes want to eat convenience food intensely.The Japanese cap ramen were liked by a world person and I heard that it saved the life of people of the world.

What do I eat in San Jose/ Sea foods

I have been surprised that everybody could use the chopsticks well, when I came to the West Coast first. And I can have abundant sea foods.

The Fisherman's Wharf which is super popular in San Francisco.

Clam chowder of the specialty of San Francisco. This bread is sour bread called Sourdough Bread. Taste of the clam chowder is different little by little in every restaurant. And taste thickens when it is the evening.

American Journey/Kings canyon

 In this trip, I visited Kings Canyon where a giant sequoia and ravine are famous.

IMG_1858_1024.jpg
Here is the entrance of the King canyon national park connected to Sequoia National Park.

Because General Grant tree is too tall, I can not take a picture as one piece of photograph.

IMG_1916_1024.jpg
This tree is considered to be 82m in height, 12m in diameter of the trunk, 1,700 years old. named in 1867 after Ulysses S. Grant, Union Army general and the 18th President of the United States. On March 29, 1956, President Dwight D. Eisenhower declared the tree a "National Shrine", a memorial to those who died in war. 

IMG_1930_1024.jpg
The plate is written "Life after death" Even after they fall, sequoias endure. These trees resist decay, sometime lasting for hundreds or even thousands of years on the forest floor.

IMG_1936_1024.jpg
In fact, the tunnel made of these trees hardly changes with the figure of the photograph 100 years ago.

It is said that the giant sequoia has the tree living for nearly 4,000 years. The Japanese Yaku cedar is beyond 3,000 years old, too. Why are these plants longevity? The giant sequoia grows on the land where 2,000m is high in altitude. The oxygen density is low, and it does not rain hardly in the summertime. The Yaku cedar grows on the land with a little nourishment of the rocky place. Speaking of the common point of both,survival environment is not good at all, and, it means that growth rate is slow. Will this apply to a human being?

Approximately 50 miles of thrilling roads passing through deep ravine follow.

Scenery varying in a color of the bave rock appears in sequence.

The rocky mountain sharpened in the glacier makes a characteristic shape.

The Kings Canyon Scenic Byway is internationally significant for its unique scenic and geologic displays. Highway 180 is a showcase of nature's wonderland.

IMG_2073_1024.jpg
I went to Yosemite on the next day. The atmosphere was strange when I approached the valley. It is a forest fire. It was smoky and the sun was a strange color, too.
That was the first experience for me in ten times of visits.

IMG_2015_1024.jpg
Because the route to the Mono Lake was closed by a forest fire, I decided to go to watch Vernal Fall. There was a little quantity of water for a dry season. So I was able to approach to near the basin of a waterfall.

IMG_2014_1024.jpg
The basin of a waterfall was cool, and the rock which shined in gold was mysterious.
