みかん

  今日は、実家からみかんが届いた。出身地の和歌山県は日本で生産量を二位を誇るみかんの名産地。アメリカのオレンジよりは、少しこぶりで味も異なる。日本の冬は、こたつに入ってみかんを食べるというのが定番の過ごし方だ。今年もみかんを食べて冬をのりきるぞ。

 
Tangerine

Tangerines arrived from home today. My home of Wakayama is famous for its tangerines and it is the second largest producer in Japan. They are smaller than American oranges and their taste is different. In the winter in Japan, it is customary for people to warm themselves under the kotatsu (a kotatsu is a Japanese heater that is set under a low table with futon comforter over it. You sit with your legs under the table with the futon over them and warm
up that way on cold winter days) and eat tangerines. This year, too, I will ride out the winter eating tangerines.
