    Everyone knows that Kansai is way better than Kanto anyway So much great food in Japan and very little fat phobia, so the grocery store meat is actually pretty good in general.

    Had some an-kimo (a type of fish liver) the other day; what a great source of a nutrition and an incredible source of omega-3.

    I have some natto culture, but I don't know where to get the tiny soybeans......that and I don't know if I can eat natto without a big bowl of rice!

    p.s. the oysters look delicious!

    The oysters were fantastic!

    The natto we didn't use the tiniest of tiny beans (they're expensive) but just the regular medium sized ones; you don't absolutely need the tiny beans, but huge ones are no good either I guess.

    What's stopping you from making some good miso soup? The only challenge would be finding a good miso I guess -- could always make some if you were up for the challenge.

    Oooooh! I love how polite you are "...前の晩ご飯の残りでございます..." I'm a first year Japanese student, so using my Japanese, reading out in the real world, is the best feeling ^^

    @Anzu: I'm going to Japan as an exchange student in one year - I may be going to Tokyo, so watch out!

    Btw, I also make my own nattou! It's SO much cheaper than what you buy in stores, and I'm getting the hang of it! I'm serving it up for some Japanese exchange students (including my sensei *gulp*) on Saturday! Hope this batch will be perfect!

    I'm so excited about perusing your blog! I live in Japan as well (Hokkaido), and I'm always looking for new, healthy food ideas.

    Hokkaido eh... I'm a bit jealous because you might actually have a chance of find grass fed meat and dairy and pastured eggs -- pretty close to impossible here in southern Osaka.

    AW! Hokkaido is awesome! I love kabocha!

    About the Kansai vs. Kantou... I think I prefer kantou style sukiyaki :P
