Hebesu is a small Japanese citrus fruit which is not as well known outside Miyazaki prefecture in Japan.  About a month ago, my friend introduced me and ever since then, I’m taking them every single day!  They’re so good! 
The blue bowl is a handcrafted by my friend’s son who is a ceramic artist in Amami island.
It’s so nice to paint something I love indeed!
