Do you know about the 7 Autumn flowers? Even most Japanese people don’t know everything about them!

As autumn’s chills continue to get colder, the time to warm up with a nice bowl of rice porridge is drawing near.

In Japan, it’s tradition to eat a mix of 7 spring herbs on the 7th of January in a ritual meant to ward off illness and bad luck, but did you know autumn has 7 plants too? Unlike their spring counterparts that ward of illness, these 7 are meant to be enjoyed by looking at them.

Without further ado, allow me to introduce these 7 wonderful flowers!

The meat you eat in your daily life, such as chicken, pork and beef is common ingredients. But what if they become "crocodiles, goats, rabbits"? In Japan, the food people don't eat but can actually be eaten is called Getemono. It has an eye-popping appearance but is good for health, and is getting more and more attention around the world. This time, I went to "Kome to Circus", an izakaya located in Takadanobaba, Tokyo, to taste this famous "Getemono" of "Japan", the world's far east country!

When Japan is mentioned, there are probably many people who will immediately imagen a "samurai".

Due to modern laws, it's no longer possible to see a samurai walking around with a katana and topnot.
