Eel Eating Day ~ 土用の丑の日 ~

明日、7月29日は土用の丑の日(doyoo no ushi no hi)です。

This year, tomorrow 29 July falls on “Doyoo no ushi no hi”. Customarily Japanese eat eel on this day.
I only know this day as “eel eating day”.. :p

Around this time, hot and humid most of the days. So we eat nutritious eel to get stamina to beat the summer heat.
You can find “unagi no kaba-yaki” (broiled eel with sweet soy source) sold at local supermarkets.
You can also go to Japanese restaurant, or special river fish cuisine or “Unagi-ya” restaurant for eel dish.  🙂

Is eel river fish?
