My Brief Love Affair with Japan

This past April, I had the pleasure of visiting Japan for the first time. I spent 17 days travelling the beautiful back-alleys of Kyoto, feeling alone and insignificant beneath the electric lights of Tokyo, and expanding my culinary palette with the many delicacies of Osaka. Japan is a very sacred place to me; the culture is truely unique. Here are some pictures of the many culinary delights that I experienced during my brief love affair with Japan~

The bakeries in Japan were found in the department stores and malls... They had some of the most beautiful cakes and pastries I have ever seen.

That piece of salmon felt like silk in my mouth~it is by far the best sushi I have ever had...
