I went to Yamagata by the Shinkansen(bullet train).
There is a konjac(devil’s-tongue plant) dish used as a course in a traditional Japanese meal in Yamaga prefecture.
This is the entrance to the restaurant I went to.
These are the konjac dishes that I ate.
All the dishes use konjac root which looks like this.
I was amazed that all the dishes could be made from this root.
Even a pudding.
Konjac is very healthy and has low calories.
The view from the restaurant was beautiful because it had snowed.
The restaurant was decorated for new year.
They have an Irori(traditional open fire for cooking).
We enjoyed eating konjac dango which is soul food in Yamagata.
