I cooked a simmered fish with Iwashi(herring or sardine?) as the tomorrow my lunch box again. herring are in season now. The bones are so weak that you can clean by hand. That's why we call herring "Iwashi", which is written as "鰯" in Japanese Kanji character. this kanji is combine "魚" and "弱". "魚" means fish in Japanese, So is Chinese, I think. and "弱" mean weak. see this? That means the fish having weak bones. I hope everybody see those Kanji characters though. and I cooked namul(Korean seasoned vegetables) with moyashi(sprout) and mibuna(green vegetable in Kyoto).
