Dear Ichiroya newsletter readers
Hi, how are you enjoying the weekend? This is Azusa writing.
It's getting more comfortable here, and it makes me want to eat a lot. In Japan, it is also said that fall is the best season for arts and entertainment. Recently I went to a piano recital of Evgeny Kissin, who came to Japan for the first time in four years. I'm a big fan of him. I gave him a standing ovation after the performance.
The concert was held in Yokohama Minato Mirai Hall. Have you heard of the city of Yokohama? It is a beautiful port town and a tourist spot. A lot of interesting facilities are assembled.
I also went to the Yokohama Red Brick Warehouse, which is a historic building built in the the Meiji Period(1868-1912) as a bonded warehouse. But it is now a popular shopping complex and there are a lot of stylish stores.
When I went there, it held a fair of special local products and various food booths gathering all over Japan. When I was walking through them, clerks said to me, "Please try it. It is delicious.", so I was doing samples one after another. I thought the green tea from Shizuoka was the best. Shizuoka is famous for green tea. Normally I can't taste the difference between one green tea or the other. No matter what I drink, I say "It's good.", but the green tea from Shizuoka tasted difference from the one I always drink, so I recommend that!
Why don't you try delicious green tea in kimono when visiting Japan?
