I had a job in Osaka for Highlighting Japan recently and as part of it, I was treated to Okonomiyaki at a small restaurant called Houzenji San-Pei, in a small back alley behind Dotonbori, in Osaka.

Too cute to eat. かわいいすぎて食べられない。
Tsukemen at Taishoken in Higashi-Ikebukuro.
My day at work today was spent in Akita prefecture eating Inaniwa Udon (one of top 3 types of Udon in Japan) for an article. Pretty rough work day if you ask me.
Rokumonsen -essence- ramen. Shibukawa, Gunma Japan.
Japanese traditional style sweets that we call wagashi often represents seasonal motifs. So, wagashi shops often have their own *design(flavor) of the month* all year round.
The picture above is something I bought in June, and it’s titled *ayu(young river fish)* , which represents early summer. Isn’t it pretty:)
