Nori (Seaweed) Store etc;

Nori Store where we always buy* 
This store is the client company of the bank where my husband worked until he retired. We call Nori "gohanno otomo" which means Good Companion with Rice.  
Besides having with plain rice adding soy sourse, used to make Onigiri and Makizushi. (←link-page will give you the idea what they look like).  Very sweet memory waiting and helping when my mother made for us when young.   Nori also can be good item for Summer and Year-end Gifts for Japanese.  
*Entrance and Inside of the store*

Birds I found recently
The male Japanese Pheasant was walking under the tree in front of my house♪ Other Birds I found on the same day, during our detour way back home. Wished the flying away doves picture taken much better p-;)

Gifted  pictures of Arranged Flower
My husband lady keyboard player friend took these pictures at the Tea Ceremony she attended. I really am grateful for her thoughts♡♡♡

I really appreciate your sweet comments ♫♫♫   I'm thinking to take off posting for a short while (a couple of week or so).  Wish to start visiting you from tomorrow☆☆☆
Have a Beautiful Autumn or Spring  Days.   
And Wishing you a Wonderful coming Halloween ♧♧♧  

Halloween decoration from my favorite cake shop;

Linking this post to these pages and Thanks to all the link hosts;


  1. Your posts are always so lovely. I enjoyed the visit to the store and seeing all the pretty birds -- the herons and the pheasant. Love the Halloween decorations at your favorite cake shop. Fun! Happy Monday!

  2. You always capture great bird shots wherever you are, the store looks very interesting so different from any here in Normandy.
    I didn't expect to see Halloween decor in your post today, a happy surprise!

  3. Dearest Miyako,
    What a lovely photos you show us here.
    Telling you the truth, every day I eat several of those Nori sea weed sheets (small individual ones) as a snack and i use with my rice cake and mixed unsalted nuts with green tea. A healthy snack all together.
    Oh, all those yummy Japanese dishes you shown via the 2 links... Made me mouth water!
    LOVE the Japanese Pheasant, so beautiful in his dark colors!
    Indeed, very thoughtful gift, that picture with the flower arrangement around.
    Sending you hugs,

  4. That was a great bird detour! Beautiful pheasant (new to me)....wonderful flower arrangements and the first part of the post has made me hungry....

  5. Love your subtle blue header for this week! The pheasant is beautiful. Now I have seen this bird, I don't know if I can eat pheasant.
    Oh my, you celebrate Halloween also in Japan? Do you also import pumpkins, like I heard from an All Season blogger in Australia? Wishing you an adventurous (not the spooky halloween kind!) week, Miyako:)
    Thaks for linking to All Seasons!

  6. That looks lovely Nori store! Nori is really gohanno otomo :-) I love onigiri! おにぎりはいつも出来たてより、朝作ったのをお昼に食べるのが好きでした^_^コンビニのおにぎり、最近は(最近でもないか)ノリがご飯と別れて売ってますよね。パリパリのノリも好きですが、朝からご飯に巻いてあってシットリしてるのも美味しくて好きです!
    Beautiful photos of birds! Pheasant is gorgeous! The arranged flowers are gorgeous, too. The cake shop did great decoration again! I love the cute black kitty :-)
    I wish you a fun Halloween, Miyako san. We are planning to do nothing here :-) Have a great new week!

  7. Yummm, nori. One of my favorite meals is nori with rice which has a bit of soy sauce.

  8. Tale telling pics. Have a great day.

  9. A wonderful little shop! How nice to have the great memories there. Loved the beautiful pheasant, and the flower arrangements. Cute Halloween displays also. Hope you have a lovely week!

  10. It's always a surprise to me to see that Halloween is celebrated in other countries, given its origins. And a pleasant surprise, since it is one of my favorite holidays and I cherish seeing pictures of decorations and goodies! Have a wonderful week!

  11. Lovely shots of the birds and flowers.

  12. Your rice links looked delicious! Less is more - as your flower arrangement show - so beautiful. Have a nice day Miyako!
