Too much sashimi is never enough
Kumamoto trams sake yakitori
One of my passions is Japanese food, which help make my visits to the great country a total joy.
As for the sake
Well that’s another story, it kind of sneaks up on you after 2 or 3 small bottles. Made from rice, “Sake” is an alcoholic beverage peculiar to Japan. It has a long history dating back to the 3rd century A.D.
Plus edamame washed down with cold beer, delicious.
Lots of choices here
Often language can be a barrier in Japan, however in restaurants like this you just have to point. 🙂
Seattles best coffee
Any idea who they may be having a go at, and I wonder what Starbucks thinks of the name? 🙂
Seattle’s other coffee
From what I have read about Seattle it always seems to be raining, perhaps that’s why everybody sits in coffee shops because it’s too wet to go outside. 🙂
Their coffee & cake suits me
I must admit I am a Starbucks fan.
Japan in famous for it’s covered arcades which are simply shopping walkways crisscrossing the cities. Many as you can see have circular transparent domes running along the roof line letting in light and sunshine.
Japanese people seem to be addicted to these noisy gambling parlours which occupy prime positions in all of the busy parts of a city. The pachinko machine is like a vertical pinball machine with no flippers and a large number of relatively small balls. The noise inside these parlours is so loud it certainly must have a detrimental effect on the hearing of their customers.
Walking past you are nearly knocked over by the noise. 🙂
Trams fares are only 170 Yen
A great way to get around the city, comfortable & cheap.
I think upstairs is some sort of shrine
I couldn’t quite work out if this was a shrine or a temple.
Part of the ritual
The people visiting here would step through this circle a number of times before continuing upstairs.
