Well, I joined a wonderful tour in Kumamoto last month. By the way, do you know Globally Important Agricultural Heritage Systems(GIAHS)? Have you ever been to Aso in Kumamoto? Aso has a grassland of vast extent, many kinds of plants and animals and traditional agriculture. So, Aso got GIAHS in 2013.
If you have never been to Aso, I really want you to visit there.
I joined an event "SEED EXCHANGE in TOKYO" Mr.John Moore held yesterday. It's the event to exchange native seeds. I've grown some vegetables at my veranda since about one and a half year ago. These are almost of vegetables from native seeds. And I get some native seeds from vegetables I grew. This cycle is very important for plants. Do you know many plants and native seeds are in danger of becoming extinct in the world? Even daizu we eat as daily food in Japan,we have only a little native beans. We have to save Japanese traditional taste for the next generation. What do you think? I want you to think about your food, vegetables and seeds. For your family, friends, lovely kids and our planet.
This event was held at a nice organic restaurant. So, we enjoyed exchanging other seeds with eating and talking together. It was really fun! Yeah, we had a wonderful time!! And I'll continue this activity with fun and hope!；）
These are seeds I brought and exchanged at the event yesterday. 昨日私が持参した種と交換して持ち帰った種たち

I have a very small vegetable garden in my veranda. These are organic and chemical-free vegetables. Last year, I took a training course of Home Eco Farmer. The goal of the course is to find out myself through the activity. I've been really enjoying the time in my small garden recently. Yes, I felt happy when I saw the sprouts, flowers and seeds, and ate the green or fruits, of course. And I learned it's important to trust the power of plants. Because they don't need too much water and sunshine. We shouldn't do unnecessary care to them. I think it's a same thing for human beings too. Yeah, It's so interesting! And I love and trust them. ;)
Hello, welcome to my blog. As always, I appreciate you visiting here. Thank you!
Yesterday, I attended the tenth anniversary event of Vegetable's sommelier association. I think that good health, long life and keeping beauty are universal hopes of people as the chief director said in his speech. And it will be necessary to eat fresh fruit and vegetables for humans even if everything evolves in the world.
Well, at the anniversary event, some great communities and vegetable's sommeliers got an award. Congratulations! And I learned many things from the speech about their experiences. It was a wonderful event!!
Thank you so much for visiting my blog. Today, I'd like to show pictures of special food for the new year's banquet a company held. The company's name is MATUNO. I have been joining in the company's events as a vegetable's sommelier sometimes. This time, the company invited us to the banquet at Meiji Kinenkan. It was a heart-warming and splendid banquet. And the chef’s special food were made from fruit and vegetables MATUNO prepared. These dishes were really beautiful and delicious! I was impressed with the fusion of wonderful producer, distributer and chef. And I trust the agriculture makes progress in Japan. We had a really wonderful time!!
Today, I'd like to introduce a Singaporean food restaurant in Ginza.
I attended a lunch party at the restaurant with the other vegetable's sommeliers.
Actually, I have been joining in Vegeful Support co.,Ltd. as a supporter. And Vegeful Support co.,Ltd. is branch factory of Matuno co.,Ltd.
The role of supporter is telling the fascination of fruit and vegetables, supporting agriculture and suggesting how to cook of fruit and vegetables, etc.
And one of our activity is to eat food at restaurants using fruit and vegetables deliverd from Matuno co.,Ltd., and telling our feeling and suggestion for restaurants.
Well, the name of restaurant we went to this time is “Singapore Seafood Republic”. in Ginza. And we ate the special buffet lunch and with Chilli crab. It was so delicious and we enjoyed eating a lot of Singapore food. Besides, the location is very good, and the price is reasonable, so I recommend this restaurant for your lunch!
Anyway, I want you to share these photos I took. Thank you.
The restaurant is at MARRONNIER GATE's 11F in Ginza.
You can eat this buffet lunch at the only Ginza shop. The view is also wonderful!
We enjoyed eating a lot of Asian food of Singapore style.
Hi, welcome to my blog! Do you know "choco-vege"? It is the new style to eat vegetables, and the partnership project of Meiji-confectionery and Vegetable sommelier association. I attended the collaboration event of chocolate and vegetables yesterday. It's an unusual combination, isn't it? Actually I had doubted it's delicious. But some vegetables matched chocolate.And I was impressed with some decoration of chocolate and vegetables. So, I think if your children don't like vegetables this is a good way to eat them. And ,if you hold a choco-vege party it must be exciting.
Thank you so much for visiting my blog! Today, let me write study meeting I had lately. I feel happy if you'd enjoy reading this article.
The other day, I attended a study meeting to suggest seasonal fruit and vegetables for a famous restaurant born in California, and that has been opening many shops all over the world. The restaurant's name is Sizzler , they’re famous for salad bar and grilled food.
And, in Japan, Sizzler has been using many fruit and vegetables carried by corporation Matuno.
And Matuno brought 8 items for this study meeting. For example…
And we thought and talked about how to make salad, etc. After that, we enjoyed eating many kinds of salad and grilled food. All dishes were so delicious. I think it was an interesting study meeting and a good experience for me.
