Delicious Meals I Ate in Japan

I’ve already written a little about the tasty things I ate in Japan, but I know you want to see what they looked like, so here are some photos to make your mouth water. Many thanks to Andrew for helping me label the photos properly.

  1. Yum! Those dishes all look delish, even if I don’t know what they are. Except maybe the Spam. So funny! Were there a lot of meals that weren’t seafood-based? I always think of seafood when I think of Japan, but that’s probably because of all the sushi places in East Lansing.

    • Spam is a big part of food from Okinawa, because of the American base there. It actually wasn’t so bad!

      There was a lot of seafood, but there are so many other options that I never had any trouble (shellfish makes me ill, so I have to watch out). I also didn’t really go to any coasts, though, so probably that would be a different story.

Dearest Fellow Travelers, tell me what you're thinking!
