One of my go-to tips for finding restaurants in a new city in Japan is to go to the local department stores. In Akita city Seibu department store has one of my favorite udon restaurants, Sato Yosuke. The 8th-generation restaurant serves Inaniwa udon that is stretched out by hand. The noodles are silky and easy to slurp. The menu offers both hot and cold udon, tempura, and a variety of toppings for the udon. Sato Yosuke also has a branch in Ginza, Tokyo, but recently the queue to get in is long so I was so happy that we could walk into the Akita branch. I tried three different toppings to th ..read more

Jajamen Morioka #jajamen is noodle dish topped with a meaty miso, cucumbers , and grated ginger . On the table is a chili sauce for adding heat and vinegar to brighten it up.

My go-to omiyage gift for friends is Yoku Moku cigares packed in its signature tin boxes. Starting today through June 14th Yoku Moku has a limited edition matcha cigare with matcha chocolate inside. The sweets are sold in every department store and I believe at both Haneda and Narita airports (last time I checked). The tin boxes also travel well so a good gift to pack into your suitcase as the cigares will not be crushed. Better yet, visit the Aoyama flagship store called Blue Brick Lounge. Diners can enjoy coffee and sweets such as matcha roll cake, pudding with a caramel azuki paste in th ..read more

Joppari izakaya Spring break in Tohoku. We started in Aomori. Dinner at this very cool izakaya called Joppari. One wall is lined with sake. Diners sit around a c-shaped counter. The menu has lots of photos and features local Tohoku dishes including harako meshi of salmon and ikura over rice, tsukemono pickles, kara agé fried chicken, scallops with eggs cooked on a scallop shell, and more. The pickles came with tags naming the types of tsukemono.  There is a live Tsugaru shamisen performance at 7:00 p.m. so be sure to arrive before that.

Ekibenya Matsuri Train travel in Japan is a fun part of holidays. We enjoy eating and drinking while on the shinkansen. We did our routine of picking a bentō at #EkibenyaMatsuri.
