Today is Midsummer Day of the Ox.
It is customary for Japanese to eat an eel on the Ox day, in order to take nourishment and overcome the heat.
But I didn’t eat eel today because I thought shops are so crowd.
Instead of that, I had eaten eel the other day in advance.
To my sad, the shop had gone out of their business. I knew that a few days ago.
The wholesale price of eel is rising. So, shop price is rising, too. But it is hard for shops to rise their shop price as the proportionate degree.
Many shops gave up their business. I think the number of those shops will be increasing.
So I won’t be able to eat eels so fluently more.
Well….. so delicious ! I was about to forget the taste …. 🙁
I ate up with having a special feeling and tasting well.
When next can I see the eel?
