It’s been a little over six months since coming to Japan so I decided to dedicate the next 30 days to what I love about being here (and what I would painfully miss when I leave), my cultural experience thus far, observations and concerns; and essentially any revelations I’ve had about life influenced by my living here.
Day 1: Fresh Fish! (In that marketplace accent in Aladdin: Aladdin – Marketplace Scene – Jasmine: http://youtu.be/RW5n4sIOj9s )
I LOVE Sashimi (Salmon is my fave) and fish eggs so being in a place where this is cheap and accessible – its freshness making it SO delicious! – is one of my simple joys here. Back home, sashimi is quite expensive, especially the fresher ones, and isn’t as readily available. But here…everywhere, every time…fresh, cheap, delicious.
