(March 11)

I spent all day with my sister, Tomoko, today.

For lunch, we went to Godaime Nodaiwa in Azabu. This is a very famous unagi (eel) restaurant for 5 generations.

Umaki (rolled omelet with eel inside) was so good.

Una-ju (grilled eel over rice).

Their unagi is always perfect. So fluffy and aromatic. I was so happy.

In the evening, we hung out at a local wine bar in Urawa.

It's a tiny place and packed with local wine lovers. Their food is very good, too. I loved the chicken heart.
