Kyushu 9: Confucian Shrine 孔子廟

I was quite surprised that Confucius is rather popular in Japan.
我很意外孔子竟然在日本如此受歡迎。

Behind the shrine is a small-scale museum, exhibiting China artifacts and artwork that were borrowed from the Chinese government. I was amazed at the intricate carvings of many jade seals... how nice would it be if my "hanko" (Japanese seal) is as pretty as that~
在寺廟的背後是一座小型博物館。展出的都是一些從中國政府借過來的中國文物和藝術精品。玉製的蓋章的手工精細,讓我驚嘆不已。假如我的日本印章也那麼漂亮就好啦~

Sacrificial ceremonies are held every year in September's last weekend at 1pm. I wonder what they sacrifice on that day... Sashimi?
每年的九月尾都會舉辦祭祀。不知道他們要供奉什麼...生魚片?

Anyway, back to my favorite topic, FOOD!
總而言之,轉到我最喜歡的話題:料理!

This crab dish looked appealing but the taste was unimpressive.
這螃蟹雖然看來很不錯,但是味道不怎麼樣。

This oily pork meat (kakuni) tasted so much better as it was a local popular dish. Just look at that thick layer of oil! Needless to say, this one was inherited from China due to the trade relationship between Nagasaki and China. However the Japanese has a weird way of eating it with mustard.
這油油東坡肉的味道比上面的那道好吃多了。雖然是本土的名菜,也不過是從中國傳來的一道佳餚。不過奇怪的是,日本人竟然沾芥末吃...
