Mayumi, Yasu, Minoru & Hiromasa (Yasu's brother)
Mayumi cooked dinner for us, or actually she prepared it and we cooked it ourselves as it was shabu shabu. Which is dish named after the sound it makes when you shortly swirl the raw beef through the broth in the nabe pot (although I never heard that sound and I did it several times). After that you dip the beef in a sauce of your choice and then you eat. I was very grateful that Mayumi prepared this dinner for us because I’d been wanting to try shabu shabu ever since I first heard about it from them in 2004. The shabu shabu was good and cooking it a lot of fun, but it's not as tasty as yakiniku.
