DISH// will hold their first overseas one-man live on February 15 in Shanghai.
The live will be a part of an event for promoting youth exchange between China and Japan. It will be held at the Bandai Namco Shanghai Culture Center. Fans can look forward to what kind of performance the band will carry out at their first one-man live overseas.
A familiar aroma wafts from Iio Jozo, a vinegar brewery in Miyazu, Kyoto Prefecture, that stands by the seaside near the Amanohashidate sandbar, considered one of Japan's three most scenic views.
Akihiro Iio is the fifth-generation proprietor of the brewery that has been producing vinegar for 125 years. The company makes all of its rice vinegar from pesticide-free rice.
Ichiro Abe, the proprietor of Takumi Kappo, gains inspiration for his menus from the fresh fish and vegetables he sees at the market every morning and even from the dishes he hopes to use.
They include a black bowl produced at the Engoji Kiln in Tottori Prefecture that is simple yet profound, as well as a Yamane Kiln round plate that is a soft opaque white.
All kinds of seasonings are a passion of Yoshiaki Takei, editor of the website "Hobo Nikkan Itoi Shinbun," who enjoys overseas travels that allow him to experience local life through cooking.
He visits markets and stores; chats with the proprietors; learns where and how ingredients are grown and how they should be cooked.
The passing of Christmas Day usually marks the end of the year's business for Masahiro Kasahara, proprietor of the Japanese cuisine restaurant Sanpi-Ryoron in Tokyo's Ebisu district. But his work in the kitchen does not stop there.
Over five days, he makes about 120 "osechi-ryori," sets of traditional Japanese New Year's dishes that keep well. He presents them to people to convey his gratitude.
This spring, DISH// will hold a live event tour tentatively titled "DISH// Live Event Tour 2018 Spring."
The band announced this on January 1 at their one-man live at Nippon Budokan. The upcoming tour is scheduled to kick off on April 1 at Zepp DiverCity TOKYO and wrap up on June 23 at Sendai Rensa for a total of 9 shows. Members of their fan club "Saragumi GOLD" will be able to enter a lottery to purchase tickets beginning January 14.
