FOOD FARE: Featuring Japan's Capital!

Seafood over rice, salad, and miso soup lunch set at your friendly neighborhood fast-food joint. Except, the place is clean. And the food is fresh. And filling. Actually, it doesn't seem like fast-food at all, except it's prepared quickly (ingenious!).

There's a beautiful restaurant in the center of Nanao with big paper lanterns shining through the windows. It's a noodle shop where they serve soups like this beef udon.

When life hands you lemons, you squeeze them into your alcoholic beverage of choice. Kanpai!

A chocolate macaroon from a Starbucks in Shibuya, Tokyo. More evidence of French culture in Japan (and delicious culture, at that).

An American burger in Harajuku, Tokyo. This was a welcome and nostalgic treat, especially shared with such a good friend :)

Chicken marsala paired with naan (oven-baked flatbread) at an Indian restaurant.

Would you believe this is a Denny's breakfast plate? Fried egg, bacon, nori (seaweed), rice, miso soup, and natto (fermented soybeans). The menu also had more "American" style meals, all in very small portions.

At Tokyo SkyTree, I had this bowl of Chinese noodles. It was greasy and didn't taste that great. It made me appreciate living in Ishikawa, where the seafood is always freshly caught and high quality.

Cherry beer, cheese plate, and mixed nuts at a British-themed pub near Ikebukuro, Tokyo. Bliss.
