Way back in '07, I traveled to Nagoya, Japan for my employer. I was fortunate enough to live there for six months and participate in all facets of the culture. I developed quite a taste for Japanese food as well and ate it whenever I could. Not only was it delicious but it was also very healthy. Many medical problems in American would be eliminated if we followed a similar diet.
The picture shows the food we were served at a traditional restaurant in Kyoto. Tomorrow, I'll post some pictures of the temples I saw there and the surrounding area. Another great memory in my life:)
