I traveled to Taipei with my husband and my daughter end of May. We flew from Haneda to Taoyuan Airport. It was my first trip to Taiwan and we spend three days there.
We enjoyed eating all day during the trip. ^^
Porridge of breakfast ❤️
Snack of shaved ice with fresh mango ❤️

We visited many places.
National Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall.
Longshan Temple near the Hotel
National Palace Museum

The weather was so hot and I drunk a lot of beer. ^^
It was a very exciting journey!
I also write a Japanese blog here!
I had a Japanese Sake Party in May since my husband got nice sake from Aizu. I served “Snowdrop（スノードロップ）” as an aperitif for my guest.
This was made of Japanese sake and yogurt by Akebono liquor in Aizu. We chose a fresh strawberry flavor that is a limited product only in spring. The sweetness is modest and very tasty. Everybody loved it .^^
We chose “Kazenomori（風の森)” for next one. This was made by Yunaga liquor in Nara. This sake was full with umami with a slightly sparkling texture, and had a refreshing taste like wine.
I made some seasonal dishes using some fresh horse mackerel(Aji) and bonito(Katsuo).
If you want to try my dishes with Japanese sake, contact me. We can negotiate and I will arrange for you. ♪

I went to Aizu in Fukushima with my family during Golden week (long Japan’s holiday in May). We went from Shinjuku expressway bus terminal. It took about 4 hours to get to my hometown. May is a good season for watching fresh green forests and beautiful flowers. ^^ We enjoyed staying my parents’ house and visited nice shops and restaurants in this trip. ♪
Aizu cotton maker “IIE Lab”
Italian Restaurant “Ristorante Luce（リストランテルーチェ）”

We met a private mascot “Otane-kun（おたねくん）” on the street. ^^
