Eel bread for the Dog Days

Last week was Eel Eating Day, Doyo-no-ushinohi, when folks here celebrate with the custom of eating grilled eel to gain stamina to beat the horrid heat of Japan. Only problem is the Japanese have eaten most of their endangered eels and now have resorted to substitutes…

Eel bread of Dog Days … Anything goes …

Eating eel on Ox Day (ushi-no-hi) was on July 24 and again on August 2-ish thanks the vagaries of the old and new Japanese calendar.
