Spicy Cod Roe and Ms. Arase's Curry Rice Plate

Updated: Jul 5, 2022

This is a story about a curry-rice plate got broken because of spicy cod roe.


The plate owner Arase (a good friend of mine) visited Koishiwara with me in 2018. She was the interviewee for our pottery town story at Taketombo. At Marudai Kiln, she interviewed the Ota family and even got to experience the signature Koishiwara tobikanna (chattering tool) at the potter's wheel.
