This blog is an amateur photographer's attempt to show how beautiful the world really is. He is drawn to the colors of nature like a moth to a candle light. What are showcased here are nature's grand display of colors at sunrise and sunset, beautiful beaches and off-the-beaten track locations in his beloved Philippines, waterfalls and some of nature's great sculptures, architectural gems, and other views from around SE Asia that he was fortunate to see at one point.

houtou - food of the warriors


Houtou is a local dish of the Yamanashi prefecture. It is a stew of odon noodles (wide wheat noodles) and vegetables in a thick miso soup.

(squash houtou)

This dish is said to be the favorite of warlord Takeda Shingen (1521-1573) and his troops. He is a very powerful feudal lord during the Sengoku (warring states) period.

you forgot to mention that although there is miso, the soup of the hotou is actually pumpkin based. The pumpkin gives it that unique thickness and sweetness. Truly a great dish!

I'm not sure pero I tried ordering odon sa mga "authentic" Japanese restaurant dito pero iba pa rin yung lasa :)

Thanks for dropping by!
