April Guide sign

At this moment cherry blossom viewing season is in full swing throughout Japan.

Cherry blossoms have been utilized often in Japanese art including paintings and literature.

In Japan, a short-lived cherry blossom has traditionally been the symbol of the transient nature of life over the centuries.

Its beautiful existence has been appreciated and romanticized in tanka poems, the thirty-one syllable forms.

Below are famous tanka poems referring to cherry blossoms.

 

1  If there were no sakura in the world,

    How peaceful and calm

    The heart in spring could be!

(written by the ninth-century court noble Arihara-no-Narihira)

2  Hopefully, may I die

    Under cherry blossoms in spring,

    In the month of “Kisaragi”

    Around the time of the full moon.

(written by the twelfth-century Buddhist poet- priest Saigyo)

“Kisaragi” is the second month of the lunar calendar, and the time of the full moon is the 15th day of every month meaning

the 15th day of the second month falls on around the beginning of April of the solar calendar. He did die on the 16th of

the second month when cherry blossoms must have been in full bloom.

3  The flowers withered,

     Their color faded away while meaninglessly

     I spent my days in the world and the long rains were falling

(written by the mid eighth-century lady poet Ono no Komachi, famous for her beauty)

4  Some cherry blossoms are falling and the remaining blossoms are going to fall, too.

(written by Ryoukan, a famous Japanese Buddhist monk (1758-1831)

Cherry blossoms viewing party (hanami) is one way to enjoy its beauty, and reading these poems is another to appreciate it.

I hope these poems will help you understand that cherry blossoms have been deeply associated with the Japanese mind.

March Guide sign

Fugu or blowfish is on the list of The World’s Most Dangerous Foods including Monkey Brains as well.

The fish contains fatal poison especially in the liver. The toxin is so strong that a lethal dose is smaller

than the head of a pin, and a single fish has enough poison to kill 30 people.

In Japan it is expensive delicacy in winter. Fillets of fugu can be eaten fried and raw.

It tastes more like chicken than fish. As a single mistake in preparation could be fatal.

It is served by only highly trained and licensed chefs. So fugu poising incidents are quite rare.

Japanese people’s love for fugu with its chicken-like taste

and slightly chewy texture has a long history.

It has been eaten in Japan since about B.C 10,000.

The Tokugawa shogunate (1603–1868) prohibited eating of fugu.

It became popular again as the shogunate power waned.

In western regions of Japan, where the government’s influence was weaker

and fugu was easier to get,cooking methods were developed for safely eating the fish.

When served raw, its flesh is carefully sliced so thinly

that you can see the patterns of the plate underneath the semi-transparent fish.

Fugusashi shortened for fugu sashimi is worth seeing and tasting.

Fugu consumption in Japan is declining now.

According to the statistics, 2015 consumption has fallen by about 40% over past ten years.

It’s pointed out that the younger generation think of the winter delicacy as one for the older,

but not for them.

Maybe they are not willing to risk their life for eating fugu

which is too expensive and too plain to satisfy their appetite.
