Soba Boro

Hi! After the hard rain yesterday, we have sunshine today. Wow! The high today is 77F (25C)!!! Though it will be cloudy and cold on the weekend...

Do you know "Soba Boro"?
It is a crispy cookie made of soba flour, sugar and egg, famous snack in Kyoto. It has unique shape (either a shape of cherry blossom or a bud). Soba Boro is Nanban-style sweets (Nanban-gashi) imported from Portugal in 1570. It's simple taste and the flavor of Kyoto appears very attractive! It's a great snack to go with Japanese tea :) Whenever I visited my deceased grandpa, he gave me this snack.

Kawamichiya is long-established wagashi (Japanese-style confection) store. Their Soba Boro is very famous and my grandpa loved it. Please try whenever you have a chance to visit Kyoto!!!

Changing my story, this morning, Marunouchi line stopped again after a long time... Last time it stopped during my commuting time was in 2007. At that time, I took a taxi and that was a bad decision! So this time I waited until it recovers, and that was right!
Whew... I had a tiring morning!

Good luck to me and you all!!!
