IWACHU Omelette pan

The unique gifts of Iron Kitchen’s cast iron cookware

Better heat distribution
Cast iron pans are unique in their ability to distribute heat evenly. Properties within the iron mean they are highly compatible with oil. This means that the oil is heated equally and also prevents food from sticking.

 

IWACHU Omelette pan is beautiful design and deeper in front to shape omelette perfectly.

Odaiba

A bit of geek’s paradise – my husband loves this place. There’s a giant Gundam robot and my husband bought a full yellow and black replica Bruce Lee outfit here. It also has a decent Ferris Wheel and aquarium.
Tokyo Travel: Odaiba (Daiba) 

 

Shinjuku - Kabuki-cho / Golden Gai

Good for a night out - loads of food, bars, etc. Blade Runner meets Soho vibe. Old school Tokyo – loads of tiny, lovely bars and eateries.

Tsukiji Fish Market

Loads of fun and a must for sushi lovers. Drinking sake and Japanese beer and eating raw fish at 7 in the morning with market workers will give you a taste for the real Japan. Get there early – 4am or 5am in the morning.

Nikko Edo Village

Fabulous Ninja theme park. Even my husband’s 70-year-old dad enjoyed it and he doesn’t like anything except his grandson, Scotch and crime novels! 

 

Fuji Q Highland and Onsen at Fuji Q Highland

Fuji Q is a great theme park and has the biggest roller coaster in Japan plus a terrifying J- horror exhibit/maze/performance art chase. The bath house (onsen) next door is excellent. 

 

Alice in Wonderland restaurant

Fun, weird and does a lovely stew. A must for Lewis Carroll, Disney or Cosplay fans. Alice's Fantasy Restaurant

 

Ueno Koen Zoo and flea market

Beautiful park and zoo in the heart of Tokyo. If you're not into zoos, the park is lovely and the flea markets are great. 

 

Alcatraz ER

Not anyone's idea of a local but fun for an evening.  http://www.timeout.jp/en/tokyo/venue/23574/Alcatraz-ER

The Iron Kitchen guide to Japan

Keiko Koga

 

So you’ve bought a teapot, drunk some sencha and eaten sushi. Now it’s time to visit the place they all came from

I don’t know how many times I hear people say: “I’d love to visit Japan but it’s just so expensive/far away/difficult”. All wrong (except the far away bit – it is far away!). However, if you do want to take a trip to the country where you cast-iron teapot was born, here are a few recommendations – some known, some a little off the beaten track.

 

The Iwate factory

This is where Iron Kitchen’s cast-iron teapots are born and grow up. Why not take a trip to the factory and watch some masterful artisans at work?

Adding extra iron to your diet

Keiko Koga

An Iron Kitchen cast iron kettle may help those with iron deficiency

Iron is an essential mineral. And despite healthier diets and lifestyles, iron deficiency is still the most common nutritional disorder in the world, according to the Wolrd Health Organisation and the US Center for Disease Control and Prevention. The deficiency can lead to anaemia, whose symptoms include fatigue and irritability among others.

However, a number of studies have found that using iron teapots and cooking with iron utensils can increase the iron content in the body.

A report from the American Dietetic Association revealed that when using cast iron teapots, a good amount of iron is leached into the boiling water. This results in the tea becoming infused with iron and tea drinkers receiving a boost of iron, minerals and nutrients. 

A further study by the American Dietetic Association found that cooking with cast iron can increase the iron content in food, while a report in the medial journal The Lancet stated that children fed food from iron pots had lower rates of anaemia and better growth than children whose food was cooked in aluminium pots. 

Obviously those suffering from such a deficiency should seek medial attention, however, the health benefits of iron cookware have been proven and give you just one more reason to buy an Iron Kitchen teapot. To get the best iron infusion, we recommend buying the IWACHU Cast iron Kettle/teapot - Set ARARE, which is not enamelled and can be used on you stove.

 

A haven for cast-iron lovers in Tokyo

How one Tokyo shop is keeping the cast-iron traditional alive and well

A couple of month’s back, I came across this lovely article (http://www.japantimes.co.jp/life/2016/01/08/food/a-cast-iron-teapot-in-tokyos-kitchenware-district/#.VyC-FGMfCN8) in the Japan Times about a small cast-iron cookware in Tokyo called Kama Asa. It’s written by designer Jasper Morrison and gives a short insight into how the Japanese are keeping the cast-iron cookware traditional alive. We hope you like it.

 

It's National Tea Day, so why not get a proper teapot?

Keiko Koga

 

If you're celebrating the only day of the year devoted to tea, then surely you should get yourself something special

It's the 21st of April and it's a special day in the tea calendar. In fact, it's probably the only special day in the tea calendar. Actually, there's no such thing as a tea calendar and we're not really sure that National Tea day should really be a thing but it is, so we thought we'd celebrate it.
Whether you're a fan of Oolong, Green or Builder's, there's no better way to enjoy a cuppa than with a genuine Iwachu cast-iron teapot from Iron Kitchen. Our teapots keep the tea hotter for longer, bring out the full flavour of the brew and look glorious. 
So, on this special day for all things tea, why not treat yourself? And even if you don't purchase an Arare or a Hikifune teapot, we still wish you the happiest of National Tea Days.
And, no,  it's still not a thing.
