Japanese Food as Art

Half the time I didn’t know what I was eating, but food was always presented beautifully. We did get a lot of seaweed and raw fish which was sometimes challenging. (I like variety in food everywhere except breakfast!) Still, even those meals were beautiful and usually delicious once I got over my cultural dissonance. Here are some of my beautiful meals.

Sushi and raw halibut topped with a local seaweed
Shrimp tempura and pumpkin and cheese balls
A fabulous beef stew. In Japan.
Raw fish and scallops
Ben to box meal. Note how red orange the egg yolk is
Opened Bento box. Lots of pickled foods here.
The closed Bento box is gorgeous

I love to travel, do arts and crafts and photography. But most of all, I like to combine them all.
