Japanese Food: Chikuwa
Itadakimasu! Chikuwa I've seen some interesting foods while I've been in Japan and then there's chikuwa. It's so alien to me that I don't even have anything to compare it to in the United States. (Probably because we don't have anything even remotely similar.) Yet, this little food is quite common here, but what is… Continue reading Japanese Food: Chikuwa
Hiroshima: WWII Memorials
Ohayo Gozaimasu! Hiroshima: WWII One of the most popular cities to visit outside of Tokyo, Osaka, and Kyoto is Hiroshima. It's not like the other cities where there are tons of otaku shops, clothing shops, or traditional Japanese culture. Even so, Hiroshima is rich with history. After all, it's a city that still shows remnants… Continue reading Hiroshima: WWII Memorials
Japanese Food: Tamagoyaki

Well, I know I sure can't pass up almond butter toast, especially after trying it for the first time. Unfortunately, almond butter toast is only… Continue reading Japanese Food: Almond Butter Toast
Ohayo Gozaimasu! Traveling Alone Traveling is an amazing experience! You get to see new places, meet new people, taste new foods, and learn something you didn't already know. With these experiences being so vital to molding us and opening our eyes, we often like to share these experiences with other people. Friends travel together. Significant… Continue reading Traveling Alone
Japanese Food: Sushi
Itadakimasu! Sushi I'm in Japan! I can't believe it took me this long to try sushi! 0.0 My goodness. :p But my wonderful host has been making food for me so often that it's been difficult finding time to go out to eat and try new foods. (Not that I'm complaining. Home made food is… Continue reading Japanese Food: Sushi
