Are you enjoying Japanese food with local fresh vegetables as well as meats or fishes ?
The 31st August is called as Vegitable Day in Japan.
"Vegetable" in Japanese is "Yasai" , and
8 = "ya"
31 = "sai"
are pronounced in Japanese so it's named Vegetable day on the 31st August.
You can try to eat not only summer vegetables such as corn, eggplant, tomato, etc, but also other seasonal vegetables with four seasons in Japan and certainly you would find fresh local vegetables in Tama area (Western Tokyo) as well !
