Continuing my previous post about my visit to a shrine for marriage on 6th Sep 2013, the last part of our day tour was this Tofu House at Ibaraki prefecture called Sashirosan no Tofuya (佐白山のとうふ屋).
They say that the forest nearby is the home for Totoro↑… Well ok...
Free sampling of their products!
Looking nice and healthy.
Other snacks made from tofu.
Gasp, so much gone after I went to the ladies...
Yummy tofu made from natural water harvested from their well water that is filled with minerals (I hope no radiation…)
These are called yuba in Japanese, meaning tofu skin. They taste really really good :)
I also bought this thing called Okara, which is soy pulp. It was sold for 10yen a pack and was frozen so it could act like an ice pack for our Tofu. Very clever isn't it? I had never cooked okara before so my friend looked up some recipes for me.
I tried to cook it a few days later but the taste was… hmm meh (acceptable)... I should try to put more seasoning next time.
