(Kyoto-28/Hanase)日本美味しいもの巡り Japan delicious food and wine tour

新緑が美しい京都へ。鞍馬寺。前回来た時はケーブルカーが修繕中で山頂まで歩いて登った思い出が。

To Kyoto, where the fresh greenery was beautiful.  Kuramadera Temple.  Remember the last time came here, the cable car was under repair and had to walk up to the top of the mountain.

京都市街から足を伸ばして、車で一時間半ほど北へ向かい、行きたかった花背までドライブ。

Drove about an hour and a half north from Kyoto city to Hanase, a place wanted to visit.

想像以上に険しく狭い山道を越え、やっと花背に入るとびっくり!なんとまだ桜が咲いていた。

Climbed a mountain road that was steeper and narrower than expected, and were surprised when finally entered Hanashi.  To the surprise, the cherry blossoms were still in bloom.

桃源郷ならぬ、桜源郷。

It's a Shangri-La with cherry blossoms.

山桜が満開。今年の桜の季節は札幌に滞在しており、お花見出来ないと思っていたので、感動もひとしお。

The wild cherry blossoms were in full bloom.  This year, stayed in Sapporo during the cherry blossom season, so not expecting to be able to see the cherry blossoms.

花背神社でお参り、何故かお賽銭箱は見当たらない。

Worshipped Hanase Jinja Shrine, and for some reason could not find a offering box.

気温も京都の中心よりだいぶ低い。満開の桜の景色が続く。

The temperature was much lower than in the center of Kyoto.  The view of cherry blossoms in full bloom continued.

今日の最終地、著名な「美山荘」。ここで道は行き止まり。美山荘は1895年創業の歴史ある料理旅館で、人気料理研究家の大原千鶴さんのご実家。今回は下見。

The final stop of the day, the famous "Miyamaso".  This is where the road dead-ends.   Miyamaso is a historic ryokan (Japanese restaurant and hotel) established in 1895, and is the family home of popular cooking expert Ms. Chizuru Ohara.  This time, had a preliminary look.

同じ山道を戻り、帰りに「出町ふたば」で桜餅と豆餅を購入。桜餅は初めて頂いたが、道明寺粉が瑞々しくもっちり、甘さもちょうど良く、桜葉がふわり香り大変美味。花背の満開の桜を思い出しダブルで感動。いつ来ても京都の四季は美味しい。

Returning along the same mountain road, bought sakura mochis and mame mochis at "Demachi Futaba" on the way back.  It was the first time to try sakura mochis here, but the Domyoji flour was fresh and chunky, the sweetness just right, and the aroma of the cherry leaves softly fragrant.  It reminded of the cherry blossoms in full bloom on the back.  The any seasons in Kyoto are always delicious.

今宵の酒を買いに、浅野日本酒店に。こちらでは、購入前に全てのお酒を試飲出来るという素晴らしいサービスがある為、間違いがない。悩んだ末に美冨久酒造の三連星を購入。左の三連星は滋賀県産吟吹雪(米)使用、右側は北海道産彗星使用。いずれも美味しく、部屋が極上の空間に。

Went to Asano Sake Shop to buy tonight's sake.  They have a great service where can try most sakes before buy, so can be sure.  After much deliberation, bought a bottle of Sanrensei from Mifuku Shuzo Brewery.  The one on the left is made with Ginfubuki (rice) from Shiga Prefecture and the one on the right is made with Suisei (rice) from Hokkaido.  Both were delicious and made the room a superb space.
