Finally mushrooms

After all the wonderful exhibitions and the kids' music festival in school,
we decided to take a break and drove into the woods for a mushroom hunt.
To our surprise, the forest was FULL of shrooms. We found masses of "Numeriiguchi"
(suillus luteus)...

Hatsutake (lactarius hatsudake)...

AND, the biggest surprise were 2 Matsutake (Tricholoma matsutake). Tsuyoshi almost stumbled over them and could not believe his own eyes. It was the first time we found some...

Here you see a close up of them. We had them with clear Japanese soup and they were delicious !!!

And here is the rest of the hunt. The green color comes from the Hatsutake. They turn green after you cut them. Actually, I wanted to take pictures of our mushroom dinner, but everybody was so hungry, that I had no chance ^^". Well, if the weather is good, we will be off to the woods next weekend again.
