Italian photographer in Saronno, deeply in love with Japan, I share my photos (in Japanese shashin) and my experiences in Japan. I love Japanese art, culture, literature, music, tradition, food, people, elegance and mostly, beautiful women.
Tempura soba is a lovely Winter Japanese dish, in this variation recepie Emiko used rucola, a bitter salad and little dried prwns for the tempura (deep fried) to put on top of the soba, buckwheat noodles in soy broth. The nice bowl is a Aizu-nuri, laquer from AizuWakamatsu, hand made black with a great red spiral. For both pictures I used the 105 mm. Micro Nikkor fully opened at f 3 (at short focus distance) for a bokeh effect, a tungsten spotlight soften by a canvas on a frame.
