One of the many things that I love about autumn in Japan is the fact that mushrooms are in season. And in Japan you have so many to choose from (shiitake, matsutake, enoki, eringi, maitake, etc...). Sure you can buy many of them year round nowadays, but there are lots of mushroom dishes on seasonal menus right now.
After eating lots of cold food over the summer, it's also the season to start eating hot soups, noodles, hotpots, and so on. So this is what I had for lunch on Saturday, hot kinoko (mushroom) soba.
