Fuyu Chisen/冬千扇 means the “Thousand Fans of Winter”.
This is the fourth ekiben of a year-long limited series I already have introduced in Spring, Summer and Autumn! I finally made it all!
The ekiben as it was sold to me this morning at Shizuoka City Railway Station!
As usual Tokaiken has clearly written the contents on their wrap!
Some collectors will want this box!
Notice that it lies on the table in front of me on the Shinkansen Bullet Train!
Beautiful design, isn’t it?
As usual a film of rigid transparent paper protects the contents!
Now, what do we have?
Rice steamed with chicken and burdock root shavings and a little soy sauce.
Boiled lotus root and cucumber lightly marinated in rice vinegar.
Boiled green asparagus, steamed mushrooms, steamed sweet potato and mandarine orange.
Boiled egg with soft yolk seasoned with black sesame seeds, boiled string bean, carrot, burdock root, seaweed (konbu) and konyaku jelly.
Shuumai, Ebi chiri Harumaki/Shrimp Spring Roll and fried buri/Japanese Amberjack!
No better way to learn about Winter food in Shizuoka!
