Land of the Rising Sun - Part 1


2010 was a year of lots of travel - such a contrast to this year so far.

In July, i had the opportunity to travel to Japan again for work.
I must say that i really do like Japan - it's mostly quite easy to get around. I usually stay in Shinjuku.

One of the things i love to do when i travel as I love food is that i usually try to find some good restaurants to frequent. Tokyo did not disappoint.

One of my favourite meals was a at a tonkatsu restaurant where the crispy crumbed pork fillet melts in your mouth. The fillet just so tender that little effort is required to consume it. It was served with fresh cold crisp cabbage - a perfect marriage of textures! It's a restaurant chain - well worth a visit.
