Food in Japan

Go to just about any Japanese person's camera, or photo album, or myspace, or mixi account...and no doubt there will be a LOT of pictures of food. They just can't get enough of food over here. And no wonder, when things taste so good.

Some of this stuff...it really is wonderful.Collapse )

Until next time, Japan is still over here, being Japan, being crazy.


In Japan these days, if you don't have a cell phone(or, keitai) you are behind the times. But despite the fact that everyone has a cell phone, people only talk on them very shortly. Think those Cingular commercials with the constant worries about minutes.

What do penguins dream of?Collapse )

And don't miss your dose of daily EngrishCollapse )

Let's continue in a posting manner this year, eh?

Tarako pasta sauce, a kind of pasta sauce...with fish eggs in it? Has a bunch of really infectious commercials. I thought I might share. This first one is a good introduction to what I mean by infectious.

I went to Kyoto on September 2nd with Natsuko and her parents. We visited some sites, ate some delicious food, and sang Karaoke.

Kansai Gaidai Kyoto tour on Sept. 1, 2006. I took about 2 hours making the movie, so verbal substance shall have to be added later.
I've searched out some pictures to illustrate how I think that Japan will differ from the US based upon no factual evidence whatsoever.

And here we go...Collapse )
