sweet obachan

.





With the packet came a letter from his obachan. I love love love her handwriting. She is practising Japanese calligraphy. Her work means a lot to me and every letter or postcard I see as the most precious gift. She's a real lady... and sweet and tiny like all Japanese grandmas. She sent jindaiko. Jindaiko means war drum. Sounds offensive?! ;-D I think she chose them because they're popular in the city she's living. They're made of fine (but a lot) azuki bean jelly, using water from the aso volcano region. Inside there's very soft and sticky gyuuhi.
