It’s been a pretty great week here in Japan! I haven’t even gotten a chance to blog all the fun stuff that’s going on, but here’s the run down of what I put up this week:
★ On Monday, we looked at Starbuck’s gorgeous Sakura Frappuccino & Sakura Chiffon Cake. I expected them to be nice, but I didn’t realize how nice they would be!
★ On Tuesday, I experienced my first High School Graduation here in Japan. It was interesting seeing the differences and similarities with US graduations!
★ On Wednesday, we tried some Hello Kitty Hina Arare, and talked about Hina Matsuri. The treats were cuter than they were tasty, but it’s been fun seeing the various ways girl’s day was celebrated!
★ On Thursday, the day of Hina Matsuri itself, we found some gorgeous doll-shaped cakes at the local combini. Tasty and adorable!
★ Friday brought the Engrish of the Week, of course, and it made me giggle like a 12 year old boy every time I saw it. How about you?
★ On Saturday we tried something new–Horse Sashimi. It was a bit strange, and I felt a bit conflicted about eating it. What do you think?
Around the web there’s been some pretty great stuff too!
◆ Our friend Geoff attempted to recreate the Miami Burger in the States! It looks surprisingly accurate, but apparently didn’t taste too good. This is after Bob attempted his own Idaho Burger a few weeks ago. I’m really excited about people trying to recreate some of the stuff we’ve posted about–hopefully the Manhattan Burger gets such love! We haven’t tried it yet, but one of our friends said it’s the best yet 🙂
◆ Don’t forget the weekly round-up over on Tokyo Bounce! They always have tons of great links!
◆ Oh, and finally the March Japan Blog Matsuri has been announced! This month’s theme is “Faces of Japan” and I can’t wait to enter!
There’s lots of Japan related fun over on Twitter (@vyxle) and if you have anything awesome to share, let me know!
