Eating eel on midsummer day of the ox
Tonight, I ate eel (unagi) at a sushi restaurant called Sushi Sams. In America, it is July 27, but in Japan it is already July 28, which to them is midsummer days of the Ox. On this day, it is supposed to be good to eat unagi. Foods that start with the "u" sound are supposed to help you deal with the heat of the summer.
今晩Sushi Samと言う寿司屋で鰻を食べた。アメリカの今晩は７月２７日だ、でも同じ時は日本に７月２８日（土用の丑の日）だ。 その日は鰻を食べることがいいだろうね。
