Japan- The Last Snapshots
Here are the last of the photos from my Japan trip back in June. Since then I’ve been back in the kitchen, excited about cooking with summer’s best ingredients, so I’ll get back to the cooking blogging soon. Is it just me or are corn, tomatoes and basil all one needs to eat during the summer? The farmers markets are just loaded with the best and sweetest produce right now.
Anyway, back to Nippon!
Taking the shinkansen (bullet train) to Tokyo from Nagoya
People gather at a matsuri in Sapporo- this area where all of the food stands are is definitely the most popular of the festival!
Punk rocker in front of one of Japan’s most popular convinience stores, SUNKUS, which is pronounced and means “thanks.” It took me a year to realize that while I lived there since I kept pronouncing the “kus” like “bus.”
