The houchoushiki fish cutting ceremony marks the start of Osaka’s Tenjin Festival. We on the #gustolabosaka2018 program got to see the ceremony performed by Chef Murota Daisuke in the shrine.

#あすかビオマルシェ the weekly organic farmers market in Asuka, Nara Prefecture where #gustolabosaka2018 students ate “cucumber frybread dogs” for lunch. Surprisingly refreshing and satisfying to have a lightly pickled cucumber with tartar sauce and tomatoes wrapped in frybread
