Ah, ox-tongue?! Yes. In Japan, Gyutan, the ox-tongue, is a daily food material for the people. Roasting, cooking soup, drying, Gyutan is enjoyed in various forms throughout Japan.

While the Gyutan of Sendai, the seat of the prefectural government of Miyagi Prefecture, is famous for giving people the impression of "Gyutan = Sendai".

How does the Gyutan taste?

Anyone who has eaten Gyutan should know that it is contrary to the feeling which such part gives the impression to the people, the Gyutan is "specially delicious"! The part of Gyutan has more muscles, less fat, and contains more protein.

Its meat quality is tougher, and very chewy. Compared to the delicacy with melt-in-the-mouth texture, the Gyutan is the chewing the more fragrant, which can make you surrounded by the happiness of delicious meat.

Yamagata prefecture - Cherry

The summer fruit of "Cherry" is round and bulging, brilliant red, just like the gem. In fact, it is the Yamagata Prefecture located in the southern part of the Tohoku region that accounts for 70% of the cherry production in Japan.

And the variety of cherry is as many as 30 kinds in Yamagata Prefecture! Then what is the difference between Japanese cherry and overseas cherry?

The delicacy of Japanese cherry is just here

Japanese cherry is smaller than the American cherry, but in contrast, its red-yellow fruit is more round and plump.

Japanese cherry tastes enough elasticity, fresh and sweet, but it is slightly sour than American cherry. So we feel no matter how many pieces people have, they can wolf down them.

Fukushima prefecture - Peach

In the Tohoku Region where the fruit cultivation prevails, Fukushima Prefecture, located in the southern part of this region, is also famous for its planting "peach".

Based on the special basin terrain character in Fukushima Prefecture, where is hot in summer and cold in winter, this is the necessary condition of distinct weather for the growth of such delicious peach.

Fukushima Prefecture, various of specialities made of peach

People can find various of souvenirs made of peach in Fukushima Prefecture. Here are just a few examples, such as:
·Peach Jelly
·Peach Cake
·Peach Manto
·Peach Financier
·Peach Sorbet
·Peach Pie
·Dried Peach
·Glace Peach
and so on...how many species on earth, it is too much to say. Therefore, it is said that peach is the most popular fruits in Fukushima Prefecture. Because I am just the Fukushima person, my recommendation shall definitely not be wrong.

The shining things are the beautiful jelly? No, this is called "Yokan" in Japan,a kind of wagashi made of bean. If taking a bite of this beautiful and intoxicating Yokan, the champagne flavors and the Japanese walnuts, raisins and other mature flavors will spread all over the mouth.

Not only Japenese tea, but also black tea and red wine are very good to match such Yokan.
