You may be wondering when the photos of delicious Kamakura vegetables will appear, but actually the main part of this post is a rainy day of Kamakura in March so please wait until the end of the post.
So... I'm in Kamakura. But it was raining so hard that I gave up moving around various temples and shrines to see Ume blossoms.
The only shrine I visited today was Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine.
Kamakura was full of people yesterday because the sky was perfectly clear. But today, the sky was perfectly white and I found less people.
I recorded this trunk for the first time after this big Ginkgo tree was blown down by the typhoon. It was blown down, but it is still huge.
I couldn't take photos of Ume blossoms beautifully so I shooted Kawazu-zakura instead. Raindrops were flowing along the branches and the blossoms while the white bright sky gave fresh impressions.
On the other hand, you will find a kind of darkness if you look into the shade. I favorited this pic.
And now is the time for Kamakura vegetables!
It was raining so hard that I stopped photographing. Today's late lunch was at Kanta-kun, a curry rice restaurant of Kamakura vegetables. The man on the street was energetically attracting pedestrians in such a rainy day. This is the main reason to decide to try Kamakura vegetables for the first time.
I ordered the Keema Curry Set. To tell the truth, I am not good at spicy food ridiculously. Well, I don't mean that I hate spicy food. It's just I'm not good at spicy food physically. But this curry rice was great. This was not spicy at all even for such a man of being-not-good-at-spicy-food-at-all. The vegetables on the top reminded me of Kyoto vegetables, which have a taste of high-quality ingredients.
This vegetable salad was pretty sweet.
This fried (or boiled...?) vegetables were just amazing. They are all light-flavored. They looked like having only salt and spice. I love this taste of high-quality ingredients. They are, of course, very healthy. I strongly recommend you to try the dishes here.
Official Website of Kanta-kun, only in Japanese
As the website is available only in Japanese, I will write down a brief guide to the restaurant here.
Name : Dokkiri Curry Kanta-kun
Address : 1-4-2 Yukinoshita, Kamakura, Kanagawa
This dish made me want to visit Kamakura Leaf, an agricultural legal person of this restaurant someday.
