We did the event for Kumamoto prefecture party with
the great help from Ginza Kumamoto-kan.
Nasu-san, Ueda-san, Douzen-san, and Naito-san, they
created like Kumamoto world very well.
Nasu-san and Ueda-san and Dozen-san cooked several
dishes, and these are so nice!!
I really surprised that Kumamoto was the southern limit to
make Sake, but now changed to Miyazaki prefecture.
At first, I started to our party at Apartments33,
I thought Japanese food is little bit difficult for the western
people, but they said wonderful and so healthy now!!
They served also horse meat, not sashimi, every our residence
cleaned them in several minutes.
But I like Basashi “horse meat sashimi” I very good with sweeten
shouyu soy sauce!
It is so interesting to see the history of Shouchu in Kumamoto.
Kumamoto south area’s shouchu is called Kuma Shouchu.
Their area’s Kuma shouchu is made by rice, and their typical taste
has the sweetness of the flavor too! Kuma is the name of the area.
They already had good taste of Sake in old times, but their area’s leader
distilled it to get the goodness of the taste, so they created the best
taste of rice shouchu. They have the similar history to Scotland, they
were told not to make the shouchu by the government called
BAKUFU at that time, but they produced it illegally.
So they kept their beautiful quality of shouchu until now.
It is very interesting story I think.
Everybody addicted with their hospitality so much.
And enjoyed the presentation of Kumamoto prefecture by
Naito-san very well.
I hope some of our residences will go to Kumamoto in future!
Thank you very much Nasu-san, Ueda-san, Douzen-san, and
