– it has been the spring
– sure, nonetherless, it is in name only
– it is still cold these days
– so he still clings a portable little charcoal stove
– in the cavernous tatami room
– eating light toasted tatamiiwashi with soy sauce
– wearing padded kimono jacket
– having some hot sake
– and longing for that the all-out spring comes

Tatami Iwashi‘ [畳鰯]:Tatami iwashi (タタミイワシ) is a Japanese processed food
product made from baby sardines or shirasu (白子 / しらす) laid out and dried while
entwined in a single layer to form a large mat-like sheet. Typically, this is done by
drying them in the sun on a bamboo frame, a process that is evocative of the manu-
facture of traditional Japanese paper. Tatami Iwashi can then be cut to various sizes
and used in different ways. Common serving styles include use as an ingredient in
soup or cut into small pieces for use as a snack or accompaniment to sake or beer
drinking, known as sakana.This food item is named for its resemblance to a straw
tatami mat common in traditional Japanese-style rooms or houses. (Wikipedia)
