Suddenly thought of the time my mum, sis and I took a trip to Japan during the Sakura season a few years back. That was before the deadly and horrifying earthquake/tsunami happened.
This was in Kyoto..what a wonderful country...so clean, so beautiful, ppl were amazingly courteous and friendly. Lovely!
Not to mention the amazingly beautiful sakura flowers we saw in the trip...Hmmmmmm
And boy oh boy...the food..how can i not mention the food...i love japanese food..and we had so many nice meals during the trip. This was taken when we had unagi rice..i'm not a big fish eater..but i finished it all..well, maybe not the skin. and i was quite taken aback when the chef asked why i didnt eat the skin! Paiseh maximum. For those who had followed a group tour to anywhere before, you will know that some of the places or restaurants they bring us to are just downright 'touristy' (spoken as if its a dirty word haha). Those, eat in 1 hour and you are out of the door type! And this chef to actually come to our table and take concern on why i didnt like the fish skin was sooo professional!
But ever since the earthquake and the radioactive scare, i don't think either my mum nor my sis would want to revisit Japan so soon...
No worries, we have some amazing local Japanese restaurants too...so that will have to do for now...Sayonara!:)
