Tempura
Next was tempura.  Only salt ( pink salt ) was served with it.   Enjoyed the crispy texture.

This side which comes with fish..... I don't know wat it was, but it was a jelly and cheese like stuff. :-)

We were too busy talking and forgot to ask.

Uncle S's 13th Memorial Service ---III

Table Setting
This was comfortable arrangement.  Usually, on tatami room, we have to sit on our heels.

In this room, they had this low Western style chairs and therefore, we didn't have to sit on the floor.

I have very bad knee, so this setting saved me.

Sashimi 
This restaurant near the cemetery serves nice food.  Beautifully presented dishes were all good.

We talked about this uncle, memories.... for the first 15 min., then we started talking about other things....sorry, uncle S. :-)

I remember I won 500 yen from this uncle.
Our family used to play Russian Poker.... for fun.
Not serious casino at all.  Also for very small money... should be statute of limitation!

Uncle's Memorial Service

It was such a feast.  17 of us had Japanese traditional course menu for my uncle's memorial service.  The lunch started around noon.  At 9 p.m., I feel full still.

Will upload the photo tomorrow.  Thanks for checking.
