We ate a lot of great food in Japan. Obviously, I didn’t photograph every meal that we ate because: A. I get really sick of people posting photos of all their meals and B. I was too busy eating them! So, here are some highlights of the food we had in Japan. There were lots of other great things, too!
We flew to Japan on Thanksgiving. Our Thanksgiving feast included a cup of ice cream and a sandwich. I have to say, United is by far the worst airline I have ever flown, but the sacrifice was well worth the wonderful time we had in Japan.
We went to a cafe one of our first days. I had a green tea float with red bean (I love it, but most people who didn’t grow up eating sweetened red beans tend to dislike it). It had sort of a slushy consistency, and was quite good!
My sister had to work for some of the time we were in Japan, so one night I texted her this photo and said “Let’s get Crunky!” Her response, “those are good”. It seems she’s used to my shenanigans and it takes more of an effort to get a reaction out of her… PS they are good!
This was the first course of a meal at a fancy Shabu-Shaby restaurant. The little house had tofu in it. Every course was this beautiful, if it weren’t so delicious I might have felt guilty about eating it.

The basement floors of the department stores are full of food, with counters selling beautiful cakes and bento boxes. A couple nights when we were tired from sight seeing we grabbed these on the way back to the hotel and ate in for dinner. They are amazing, I had some of the best teriyaki fish I’ve ever had from one of these!
