We’d definitely fill not just our eyes but our tummies too with our favorite Japanese dishes.Kabayaki eel is particularly in my mind. Since this is nutritious, and is a stamina-generating food, I included it in my diet…had it been cheaper I’ll eat unagi everyday. 😀 Many people in Japan still follow customs from the Edo period to eat kabayaki during the summer, especially on a particular day called “doyo-no ushi-no-hi”, which is in mid-summer. I would want to experience that too!
Where else to get the freshest sashimi but where it originated from…Japan’s resources of tuna, salmon, butterfish and even sea urchin are vast…If you have been watching the Dotch cooking show, you will see how dedicated they are in upholding their cuisines. They’d go 7 days straight into the sea just to find a certain type of tuna. They’d go diving longer than a normal person just to find the most unique eel…I admire their dedication. Despite the quakes, my desire to visit hasn’t declined. My hopes are up and if given the chance I’ll meet up with fellow bloggers, Joanna, Bambi and Mommy Clang. 🙂
you are so cruel sis! i have been craving sushi and unagi for quite some time and I think I just lick the laptop screen!!! 😉
ohhh seeing the kids as always!
Now I know, sakura is cherry blossom..

Oh I love Sakura blooms too! I really don't know but it captures me. It is really beautiful to look at plus it gives me a beautiful feeling inside. Hope to see a real tree in the future. Happy PF & MM mare.
