First self cook meal in Japan

After a week living in Japan, I finally started to cook my own meal.

I have bought the Rice at 西友(Seiyu) last week for 3299 Yen but can’t cook it without a proper rice cooker. Tried the Microwave method but failed.

Then I bought the rice cooker yesterday for 6280 Yen and finally can cook rice at my own room. After read up the explanation at the booklet, I washed the rice and turn the power on.

Then I bought a pack of Fish Fillet costed 104 Yen at the 99 yen shop and microwaved one of it with my tupperware.

After Microwaved.

Then I bring it back to my room and open up my rice cooker. It’s just the time for the rice to be fine cooked.

Then I take out the rice and put in my tupperware. Then put in some 昆布(konbu, a kind of seaweed), add some filling at top of it then my dinner is done. Photos below. ^^


Final Product.

Total expenses for this meal is around 80 yens. And then I still have some rice left to be make お握り(Onigiri) later. ^^
