“Doyo no Ushi” Day

From Wikipedia

In Japan, mainly southern than Hokkaido, temps up to over 30 Celsius, something near 40 Celsius these days.

Today is “Doyo no Ushi” day. Doyo means before 18 days of Rissyu(first day of autumn in the old calender). Ushi means “ox”, you know Chinese Character or Zodiac. It’s today.

In Japan, although its custom is somewhat fading away, people eat eels which are soaked in “tare” (sauce, in good restaurant which has a long history) and grilled on warm rice – “Una don”.

In these years, many eels come from China. Today I’ll go out in the evening, perhaps will not be eating Unagi.
