いわき居和気

ookawauoten:

本年度の、うに貝焼の商談・視察のため、青森県八戸市と岩手県洋野町に行ってきました。
いわきでは、うに貝焼が出来ないため、岩手県産のムラサキウニを使用し、青森県の加工場で製品化しています。2012年から、青森の水産加工屋さんと協力し、いろいろ試行錯誤しながらここまで来ました。色、形、ウニの状態等、毎年商品の質が向上し、大変美味しく仕上がっております。

ちょっとややこしいのですが、岩手と青森の県境なので、産地と加工場が違います。

来週ぐらいから、大川魚店でも取り扱いを開始します。
今年も、うに貝焼をよろしくお願いいたします。

I love the project this guy is working on. As JETs, we get to see a different Fukushima than the one portrayed in the media. I get a lot of aspiring JETs asking me about life here and the truth is that while I accepted my placement unsure about what I was getting myself into, I don’t regret coming here at all. I’ve been lucky in my placement and with my BOE and I’ve gotten to see a lot of the prefecture thanks to people in my town and others they’ve introduced me to. There’s a lot more to this prefecture than people realize. Before I came here, the only image I had of Fukushima was the destroyed coastline but hopefully this project will change people’s understanding of what life in Fukushima is really like.

Hi guys, i want to promote this project a really awesome guy i met last year is trying to get funded. I’ve been living in Fukushima for the last eight months as an ALT for the JET program, and i’d love to see this film happen. (my town’s the badass one, with the fire festival. :D )

We, ASHA=Asian Sustainable Holistic Approach, are the non-profit organization that actualizes the independence and sustainable lives of the rural vilalgers through “agriculture” while making the gist of our projects to be living and working with these Asian rural agriculturists.

Improving the lives of underprivileged people of Indian villages should not be them waiting for the outer forces to support them, but rather, themselves having the power to gather and put their own effort in developing their own villages. Many elderly people of the villages have suffered living under poverty and discrimination for a long time that they have lost dreams and hopes for the future. Thus, we believe that changing the youths and children would change India and its agricultural villages.”

 A friend and I went to Tohno with Sachiko and her son to plant potatoes. Cancelled because of the rain but we met Mr. Sato, who works with the NPO ASHA (http://ashaasia.org/), a very interesting man with excellent English. We harvested some veggies and looked through the hen house, where he talked to us about what he feeds them and how the Sato family make their own fertilizer.

After carrying my veggie loot back home A and I decided to make meatball soup and salad with the veggies. Alas we disturbed a snail, whom we had to put in the grass outside with one lettuce leaf for sustenance (for until he got used to not living in a green house veggie paradise).

Before this woman came on strage, 3 younger kids sat down behind me excited, saying ばあちゃんは次よね, grandma is next. 

I love the fact that this is someone’s nana, (who I later found out is in her 80’s), dancing and moving the way she does.
