quote
There is an old saying, Osaka no kui-daore— literally, Osaka people want good food even if they have to go broke for it. But we can take it to mean simply that Osaka people expect their food to be very tasty. One popular Osaka treat is kushi-age.

To make kushi-age, take small pieces of meat and vegetables, place them on a thin wooden skewer, coat them in a wheat flour batter, sprinkle on breadcrumbs, then drop them in a deep fryer. A ready-to-eat skewer is quite cheap (about 100 yen) in just about any shop or restaurant. Kushi-age are considered a down-to-earth, working-class snack, best eaten just out of the fryer at a counter, perhaps with a beer in hand.

You are likely to see outlets selling them in busy parts of Osaka, especially in the Shin Sekai (“New World”) district of Naniwa Ward. The district’s most impressive feature is the Tsutenkaku Tower, Osaka’s answer to the Eiffel Tower in Paris. Near the tower is a jumble of eating and drinking establishments, mixed in with small stores.

The district may not be large, but it has an impressive number of shops serving kushi-age, each one trying to outdo the next. One of them, Daruma, claims to have started the craze— it dates from 1929.

It was the first shop to serve kushi-katsu, skewered pieces of beef.
Daruma has a counter but no tables, and it is so small that it can only serve seven or eight customers at a time. The unwritten rule here is to eat, pay and run, so you almost never have to wait long, in spite of the popularity of the place. Today the ingredients are quite varied—not just beef, but pork and chicken too, plus seafood such as squid and octopus, and vegetables including onion, lotus root, asparagus and mini tomatoes. Altogether, there are more than 30 choices in the display case to tempt you.

Daruma’s kushi-age are cheap and simple to make, and they are fried to perfection, too. The batter has different seasonings, the breadcrumbs are made so fine they look like sand, and the recipes are a trade secret. Some kushi-age are deep-fried with lots of batter, others have just a thin coating, others have none at all—it depends on the ingredients you choose. This too shows Daruma’s attention to the culinary experience.

When your piping hot order arrives, dunk each piece into the special sauce in the metal container. The fragrant crispy batter melts in the mouth, the tasty food releases its flavors, and the seasoned sauce adds to the magic.

Acupuncture
Acupuncture (from Lat. acus, "needle" (noun), and pungere, "prick" (verb)) or in Standard Mandarin, zhēn jiǔ (針灸 lit: needle - moxibustion) is a technique of inserting and manipulating filiform needles into "acupuncture points" on the body. According to acupuncture theory, this will restore health and well-being, and is particularly good at treating pain.

Acupuncture is thought to have originated in China and is most commonly associated with Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). Different types of acupuncture (Japanese (hari 針), Korean, and classical Chinese acupuncture) are practiced and taught throughout the world.

Matsuo Basho 松尾芭蕉、1692, age 49

into my moon and flower
folly, I'll drive a needle:
start of deep winter

acupuncture

針立や肩に槌打つから衣 
haritate ya kata ni tsuchi utsu karakoromo

an acupuncurist
pounding into my shoulder;
the cast off robe

Tr. Barnhill

Written in 延宝3年 , Basho age 32.

The word haritate here refers to the tools of an acupuncturist.
karakoromo is a pun with a "Chinese robe"唐衣 or a cast-off robe 空衣, meaning a naked body.
The acupuncturist uses a small hammer to drive the needle into the skin. So Basho has his shoulder exposed to the doctor.
