Knife Ceremony 包丁式

#sadamikonchi #houchoushiki Once in lifetime opportunity! On 20 Nov, I attended a traditional Japanese culinary art form billeting a fish without touching it by a cutter's hands. Shinto ritual origin, properly an offering to the gods in Heian period. The chef dressed in traditional clothes, an #eboshi hat and #hitatare robes with long sleeves. So, the knife master tucked them up. Wow! To me, an old Japanese lover, very eye-pleasant and interesting💖. The spot on sketch amazed / amused audiences and the staff! Thank u, Australia-Japan Society, for this wonderful and rare opportunity😘💕🤓🎉

生涯一度の チャンスだと 感じました 日本の #包丁式 に 出られて感激です. これは #平安時代 から 伝わる #儀式 で #包丁士 は 手を触れることなく 食材を 切り分けます .元々は #神道 から発して 神々に お供えをするというものです. 伝統 を伝える #エボシ と #直たれ は とても 珍しいし 嬉しかったです! 何と言っても 私は日本の古文が 大好きなので. その場でのスケッチは 見ている みんな と スタッフを 驚かせたし 楽しませました. ありがとう #オーストラリア 日本協会 この素晴らしい そして滅多にないchance を!! #sydney #australia
