With fall turning into winter in Japan, it is time for some cold weather food photos! Here are some pictures of a dinner that we had at our friend’s house in Chiba.

This post is also my submission for this month’s Japan Blog Matsuri, hosted over at Surviving in Japan.


The theme this month is “Fall is the season for eating”, so here are some pictures of our warm oden dinner. From appetizers, to rice and soup…

Rice and Soup

And finally the star, a nice big pot of oden. In this pot we had daikon (radish), ninjin (carrots), shirataki (konnyaku noodles), konbu (kelp), aburage (deep fried tofu pouch) stuffed with mochi, and a variety of fish cake such as gobo maki. And when eating oden, don’t forget about the karashi (Japanese mustard)!
