Sawachi Dishes at a Local Food-Related Event

OK, I guess I’m still a bit feeling down from my previous post, so let's cheer up! These photos were taken at a local food-related event last Sunday. The dishes are called Sawachi (often pronounced "saachi" ), which are our local famous dishes. Basically they are bunch of local foods served, arranged in a gorgeous, decorative way, on big, often expensive plates. Among traditional Sawachi dishes, there were several modern versions with a Western or Chinese touch.
Enjoy! :D (Click photos to enlarge.)








The castle was made using apx. 1000 koya-dofu (frozen tofu)! :O

No, these were just for decoration, no tasting.
Thanks for the hug. :)
