We traveled by train down to Kagoshima to see the sister and family of my future MIL. Her younger sister and BIL, mother, and niece's family all live in the same neighborhood. Much like my fiance's mother, his aunt is a very good cook. She made a super tonkatsu from kurobuta. They also grow many vegetables on their land.
So many delicious dishes.
snap peas with pasta
raw chicken and chicken skin
A Kagoshima specialty, the chicken was butchered that morning.
