Today was Ushinohi. That means that today all Japanese people ate unagi. Unagi is fried eel and very famous in Japan, it is also extremely delicious. I learned about this custom when one my students asked me if I was going to eat unagi today. My students have taught me so much about Japanese customs already. Excitedly, I too went to the store and bought unagi for dinner, and it was even on sale today!


  1. OMG how i miss that. NOBODY makes that here in those stupid sushi places. Normally though I don’t like more than 3 slices on top. The taste turns weird after 3.

  3. The day for eating eel at DOYO NO USHINOHI
    The first day of autumn according to the lunar calender is usually the hottest part of the year.
    So we eat eel to keep or up stamina, because it is
