If you happen to be a regular reader of this site, then you'll know that I love Ilikas, the soul food of Tokushima. (If you don't, you can read about it here. And if you're wondering "what's Ilikas? Please refer to Namako Man's blog)
But I've never bought anything from a specialist shop before.
I didn't know there was an Ilikas shop in the first place.
I happened to see him on Twitter and found out about Takken Ilikas Kobo.
After all, people and shops that specialise in one thing have a great deal of grace and determination.
After all, we fall in love with the atmosphere of craftsmanship.
Oops, back to the topic at hand.
I've always wanted to go to a shop and buy an Ilikas, but I finally got my wish and bought an Ilikas from 'Takken Ilikas Kobo'!
I couldn't go and buy it because of my work, but they sent me a freshly made one.
It arrived on my day off, so I decided to grill it and try it.
When I opened the box, I saw this!
They are giving away a special sticker to the first purchaser. I'm very happy about this. I think I'll put it on my top secret Tokushima notebook.
The flyer is also very good. I hope you'll take a look at it, as it explains what Ilikas is.
