Mt. Fuji has long been a popular destination for visitors from overseas. The area around the foot of the mountain deserves a closer look, as well, for its rich natural features and outstanding food culture.

In this episode, we'll be making ten don, or tempura rice bowls, a popular dish in Japan. We'll be using shrimp, corn, and other colorful ingredients, and Chef Rika will share her secret technique to easily make crunchy, delicious tempura. For our side dish, we'll be making chrysanthemum greens seasoned with vinegar - the perfect match for ten don! The mild bitterness of the chrysanthemum greens goes wonderfully with the flavor of the vinegar, for a deliciously refreshing side dish.

In this episode, chef Rika Yukimasa makes omelet rice, deliciously flavored with butter and ketchup, and with a tender, fluffy omelet. This simple recipe for this western-style Japanese dish is made without wrapping the omelet around the rice, for easier preparation. For the side dish, she uses eggplant, a fall ingredient, grilling it and serving it with a miso dressing. The dressing is made with sushi vinegar, giving it a deliciously light and clean flavor.
