April 29th – Showa Day

Shōwa Day is a Japanese annual holiday held on April 29. It honors the birthday of the Shōwa Emperor (Hirohito), the reigning emperor from 1926 to 1989. The purpose of the holiday is to encourage public reflection on the turbulent 63 years of Hirohito’s reign.

Emperor Hirohito died on January 7, 1989. April 29 was subsequently no longer celebrated as The Emperor’s Birthday but instead as Greenery Day, part of Japan’s Golden Week. After a series of failed legislative attempts beginning in 2000, the April 29 holiday was finally renamed Shōwa Day in May 2005, and Greenery Day was moved from April 29 to May 4.

This year April 29th is on Sunday so April 30th is a substitute holiday.

Yakitori – skewered chicken

If you like to try out Japanese food – you don’t want to have any weird stuff,,, like raw octopus, organs or crunchy stuff at the end of chicken wings… I recommend Yakitori for Japanese-food-first-timers. Yakitori, grilled chicken, is commonly a Japanese type of skewered chicken.

They are served at traditionally small restaurants or stands – they are called Yakitor-ya. They grill yakitori to order over charcoal. It’s marinated Teriyaki-taste sauce or salted. Yakitori-ya has variety of skewers – most popular kind for foreigner is asparagus wrapped with bacon. Some yakitori-ya do very good job. They grilled just right – crispy outside and juicy inside.

Gourmet in Yokosuka – Yokosuka Kaigun Curry

Curry is one of the most popular dishes in Japan, along with ramen noodles and sushi. Curry originated in India although it has been adapted and become popular around the world, including in England. It is said that the Japanese navy followed the example of the British fleet, where curry was originally eaten because it could be preserved for longer than ordinary stew. The Japanese soldiers brought the curry recipe back to their homes and it spread from there.

Yokosuka is known as Curry Town in Japan.
