::::: Event Report on November 19th, 2016 :::::


Last Saturday on Nov 19, “Enjoy what’s in season in Saitama -Satoimo Tour-“ was held without any trouble! We were so happy to have the event without cancelling….because the weather forecast one day before saying “hard rain”, but it turned out it was just cloudy after a little rain! 

After taking a walk in the vegetable farm in Sayama, we started harvesting Satoimo and other vegetables. One elementary school girl was very good at digging Satoimo, she harvested many big ones!

Then we enjoyed special dishes using Satoimo cooked by a local café. All the dishes were delicious, deep fried mashed Satoimo, seasoned rice with Satoimo, etc, etc…. and a big surprise was the Satoimo ice cream! It was the first time to taste the ice cream made from Satoimo for most of the participants!
