Shizuoka Tourism: Shizuoka Fujisan Airport in Shimada City!

At long last I was able to make use of the aiprort they built in 2008 in Shimada City, Shizuoka Prefecture under the name of Shizuoka Fujisan Airport, that is the airport that welcomes you to Shizuoka, the home of Mont Fuji!
Why did I use it?
Because I paid a short visit to Taiwan.
I traveled from Shizuoka City, and you will discover how easy and practical it has become to travel from and to Shizuoka Prefecture!

The above map will you give you an idea of our location!
Now just follow me!

You can always board the bus from Shizuoka JR Station, platform 4, but even more practical for people who live in Shizuoka Cty is the bus station at Cenova Department Store where you are protected from all nature elements.
First go to Gate 6!

Christmas is drawing near!

Inside view from the observation deck.

And then, it is the next step through the Customs!
Can you see the official trying to tell me not to take pictures? LOL

Another souvenir shop inside the waiting lobby.

Plenty of snacks and drinks for those who can wait until they are inside the plane!

Waiting patiently inside the spotless clean little waiting lobby.

Good-bye!
See you in Taiwan!

French Bistro Gastronomy: Boudin Blanc at Patina in Shizuoka City!

Service: Very friendly and smiling
Facilities: Very clean. Beautiful washroom.
Prices: Reasonable
Strong points: A true cafe where to relax and enjoy a good light meal any time of the day. Interesting reasonable wine and cider list.

As I said in my previous report Boudin Blanc is a delicacy dating back to the Middle Ages and is nowadays made with white meat ( as opposed to Boudin noir/Blood sausage) with pork or veal fat added. Some chefs use more or less flour or yeast to liaise the meat and make it easier to cut.

Patina in Aoi Ku, Shizuoka City, was offering Boudin Blanc Lunch in their weekly lunch set menus and I couldn’t resist again! At less than 10 Euros, it is a bargain!

Boudin Blanc is more of an Eastern and Central France specialty but a Bordeaux wine is fine for it!

A good start on a cold rainy day!

Hot gaspacho made with local vegetables!

The Boudin Blanc plate!
Is this really Japan!
And I already told I know of other places, but this is one of the tops!

Lady Chef kondoh’s recipe is different, but she favors pan frying her carefully home-made Boudin Blanc and serve them in a Dijon seed mustard sauce!

I wonder if one has ever heard the comment, “a Boudin blanc with a feminine touch”?

Plenty of fresh local greens for great balance!

Baked sweet potatoes make for a lovely touch!

You can choose between rice and grilled soft bread. No contest there!

Lady Chef Kondoh uses no flour or liaising agent in her Boudin Blanc. It might be more difficult to cut it cleanly but the result is a tender and so light sausage!
I had great difficulty eating it slowly… A beauty!
When lady chefs surpass their male colleagues….!?

French Bistro Gastronomy: Boudin Blanc at Caravin in Shizuoka City!

Service: very friendly if a bit shy.
Facilities and equipment: overall very clean. Beautiful washroom.
Prices: Reasonable
Strong points: Authentic French and European bistro gastronomy. Slow food. Excellent and reasonable
wine list.

I told you no longer ago I would have to visit Caravin in Aoi Ku, Shizuoka City not before long!
Well, the other day I just couldn’t keep that Boudin Blanc out of my head and had to sample it again before I got mad!

Boudin Blanc is a delicacy dating back to the Middle Ages and is nowadays made with white meat ( as opposed to Boudin noir/Blood sausage) with pork or veal fat added.

It can be served in many ways. Chef Onoda’s preferred method is pan frying his home-made boudin blanc and serving it with the vegetables of the day.

You have to come to Japan to find Boudin Blanc presented as an artistic montage!

The Boudin Blanc is fried in light fond de veau/veal stock, jus de volaille/chicken broth and Dijon mustard and mounted on Shizuoka-grown organic Red Moon potatoes!

Enormous fresh shiitake mushrooms are also used for the support while a green touch is added with a long shishito green pepper!

Such a fine texture!
Did I say they were sublime?

True French bistro gastronomy in Japan!

And this is not the only place!

Shizuoka Sake tasting: Fujimasa Brewery-Junmai

Usually I’m not really keen to acquire “souvenir sets” when it come to sake, but Fujimasa Brewery in Fujinomiya City, whose sake are not easy to buy in Shizuoka City, put out an interesting set I could not resist!

Instead of the difficult to handle one-cup sake they offered their products in 180 ml bottles making it so practical for individual tasting of 3 different sake instead of having to buy the bigger bottles.

Cute design representing the brewery!

You are invited to compare the three different tastes!

The third bottle: Junmai!

Rice milled down to 60%
Alcohol: 15~16 degrees
Bottled in August 2012

Clarity: Very clear
Color: Golden hue
Aroma: Dry and fruity. Very dry bananas, almonds
Body: Fluid
Taste: Very dry attack backed by a little junmai petillant.
Very nutty flavors: almonds, macadamia nuts, and faint oranges.
Disappears very quickly with faint notes of oranges and more nuts.
Very easy to drink.
Constantly calls for the next cup.
Stays dry and very smooth with every cup.
Take an even drier turn with food.
Changes little with food but tends to take a back seat then with more oranges and nuts.
Tends to become a little sweeter on the palate when away from food again.

Overall: A junmai obviously designed for food.
Shows little of the characteristics of a junmai but is nonetheless very pleasant and marries well with food.
Even though, being very dry, it could be drunk best as an aperitif. A dry sherry?
Definitely for dry sake lovers!

French Desserts: Tarts at Patina in Shizuoka City!

Service: Very friendly and smiling
Facilities: Very clean. Beautiful washroom.
Prices: Reasonable
Strong points: A true cafe where to relax and enjoy a good light meal any time of the day. Interesting reasonable wine and cider list.

When it comes to cakes I’m a loser for tarts!
You simply cannot beat them when you are looking for the tastes you enjoyed at all times of your life.
They probably are the best example of seasonal cakes back home in France and in many other countries!

When it comes to indulging in them I go straight away to Patina in Aoi Ku, Shizuoka City where I enjoy them at my convenient leisure with a large cappucino!

Here are two I recently enjoyed:
The first one was advertised as apple and oranges, fruit you find in abundance here in this season!

Tarts there are usually served with a big dollop of ice cream to marry with the tart lightly grilled under a salamander!

For a better look of the fruit baked atop a light marzipan and crispy pate sucree!

With some delightful apple compote and elegant custard sauce and mint for the finishing touch!

The second one served with an elegant cappucino.
Can you guess what fruit are used this time?

Apple, fig, orange and banana!

Really appetizing, isn’t it?

Custard sauce with raspberry sauce, caramel sauce and ice sugar for a sin of a dessert!
So elegant!

And naturally exquisite ice cream to marry with the warm tart!

I always keep the dark baked pate sucree for the last bite!

Weird Japan (28): Ludicrous Movie Theater Regulations?

When some regulations can turn weird when translated into English by people who don’t bother to check….
Can you find them on this board I found in the Movie Theater Plaza inside Cenova Department Store in Shizuoka City?

Who would want to set a movie theater afire?

I was about to take this picture when an employee rolled a moving signboard in front, hence the odd angle.
Well since that might imply you are still allowed to bring one as such, I’m tempted to take a caged human friend of mine along….

Japanese Izakaya: Odakkui in Shizuoka City!

Service: Very friendly, smiling and attentive in an easy-going manner
Facilities & equipment: Very clean overall. Superb washroom (mouthwash provided!)
Prices: Reasonable
Strong points: True izakaya gastronomy of a higher level. Local products extensively used. Great list of sake, shochu. Wine available. Private rooms possible.

Odakkui had been a solid institution when the owner decided to renew the whole place when the building housing them was to be rebuilt.
It has now become just a superb establishment which must be one of the best three izakayas in the whole Prefecture without a doubt!

Chief Manager and Chef Nobuhiro Sugiyama/杉山信廣 at work.

The restaurant is now divided into three distinct rooms to satisfy all customers’ priorities and preferences.
-The main restaurant (called “Omote/おもて/Front”) with a large window overlooking the main street, a counter in front of the kitchen and a large tatami area with dug-in seating.
-A cozy bar-style room (called “Ura/うら/Back”) seating only 5 customers (prices are the same in every room) away from the main room where fried food is prepared. The two rooms communicate through a long corridor bridging the access stairs.
-If you wish for even more privacy three rooms are located behind the small bar. The same rooms can have their partitions taken away for a single private room party.

Don’t worry! There are drinks for every taste including soft ones!

Including plenty of wine!

Plenty of tempting cold foods in wait for you!

For our first visit of newly reformed izakaya the Missus and I opted for the quiet “Ura/Back” bar-style room.
It is just impossible to sample everything in a single visit so we concentrated our order away from fried food we will sample in the “Omote/Front” room next time.

But first the drinks!
While the Missus was sipping her red wine by the glass I started with a cup of Shizuoka sake concocted by Kokko Brewery in Fukuroi City called “Den Ichirou/傳一郎/the professional name of its master Brewer!

One will understand at once the level of an izakaya, whatever the prices (comparatively reasonable in Odakkui considering the quality), when you look at the o-tooshi/お通し/first snack served with first drink: Odakkui’s is not only generous, but absolutely yummy and artfully served on a beautiful Japanese paper napkin!

We always order a plate of seasonal sashimi, another clear indication of the level of any izakaya.
Odakkui’s is just superb! How much would you pay for that in Tokyo? LOL

Beautiful Red Cuttlefish/Aka Ika/赤烏賊! Perfect , almost crispy, bite!

Lean tuna/maguro akami/鮪赤身 that melts inside your mouth. Served with freshly grated Shizuoka wasabi root!

Sole/Hirame/平目 served with its engawa/縁側/Fringe flesh which is usually discarded in Western Cuisine but which is a delicacy here in Japan. No need to say it must absolutely fresh!

A little “service” that you will not be offered for free outside our Prefecture: Home-marinated wasabi stems!
A must-try!

The Missus was keeping to her red wine but it was time for another cup of sake (I was actually offered a “service” cup from another Prefecture in between… the joys of my work!): two different bottles of Toyo Bijin/東洋美人/Beauty of the East from Fukui Prefecture.
Now, which bottle did I choose?
The red label one, naturally!

We couldn’t resist one of the comfort food on display in front of us: grilled bacon and potato salad!

Plenty of fresh vegetables in a well-balanced salad!

Now, another Japanese specialty you will find in any good izakaya, kushiyakiya and yakitoriya: niwatori nankotsu karaage/鶏軟骨唐揚げ/deep-fried chicken cartilages!

Crispy, cracking and so yummy!
needless to say that the chicken must be absolutely fresh!

We had spent a long day walking outside and we were hungry.
No better comfort food than hot (in both senses) mabodofu!

Now, if you a rice fan, you must try Odakkui’s ishi yaki chahan/石焼きチャハン/earthenware fried rice!

A truly Japanese fried rice topped with dried seaweed. A whole meal in itself!

A little detail I always appreciate in a good izakaya: delicious sorbet to refresh yourself!

To be continued… I told you I will have to come up with a report on the Omote/Front room!
