栗Chestnuts is called Kuri in Japan. Also called Marron in French.

Kuri is a delicious tree nuts in autumn. We generally eat steamed Kuri. However many of the kuri sold at stores are made in China.

So I recommend Japanese food called “Kuri-gohan”. It’s rice cooked with Kuri.

You can buy seasonings with Kuri at the supermarket.


秋刀魚Sanma is called Paci c saury or Saury pike in English.

Most common cooking is grilled with salt. We eat it with radish paste and soy sauce. The body is delicious but bitterness of the internal organs is best.

However, don’t you grill it yourself. Because, when you grill raw fish, a lot of smoke comes out like a fire. If you want to eat Sanma at your home, you should buy a grilled Sanma, and warm it via microwave, then eat with warm rice.

You can buy a Sanma at supermarket, It’s about ¥150 – ¥300.

By the way, the act of dismantling the body of the Sanma is a good practice of using chopsticks.
