I am not the best one to talk about food in Japan as I did not try much. But for a food lover there are a lot of options once you get over the unknown and sometimes repulsive (for me) smells.
I mostly avoided the food there as I do not like fish and I just could not get over the smell. But I did get a chance to take picture of a few.
One of the lovely things about the restaurants in Japan is the way they present the food out side their businesses. These dishes are an exact replica of the ‘real’ dish made in plastic/wax. There is a big industry which makes food ‘models’.
Here are some of the food ‘models’ that I caught.
Vending machines are omni-present in Japan. Right from the smallest town to the biggest city, vending machines are practically at every corner. They sell anything from cold drinks/ hot coffee to rice packets and sweets. I have seen a video which showed vending machines with clothes….Hmm interesting
I had Okonomiyaki in Miyajima. It is a something like an omlet with noodles and lot of toppings. Okonomiyaki is mainly associated with Kansai or Hiroshima areas of Japan, but is widely available throughout the country. Toppings and batters tend to vary according to region. Tokyo Okonomiyaki is usually smaller than a Hiroshima or Kansai Okonomiyaki
