Earlier we attended an Imonikai in the Tokyo area of former residents of Yamagata prefecture where Yayoi grew up. On November 19, 2012 Shinomiya Masao showed up with the fixings for another Imonikai. The weather was not cooperating so Yayoi cooked the satoimo and other vegetables inside. What a delicious soup it turned out to be! Okano-san was able to join us for lunch and he and Masao-kun had a good chat.
