Here’s one of my favorite Japanese dishes during the Winter Season, I guess anything with rice is a good thing.  We called this recipes Takikomi Gohan Meals and in one of those meals is Kaki Gohan or Oysters Rice.  If you love Oysters like I do, this will be a recipe you want to try for the family.  I wish I knew this recipe when I was living in Hawaii I’m sure my mom and sisters would love this too.
