Japanese Meal


I visited tokyo twice in 10 days for a total duration of 4.5 days. If you guessed it..I was in transit. Back in 2003 there was the SAARS flu scare. I had to visit Sydney for some work but my family put the foot down on me flying via SAARS affected nations which was most of the South Asian connecting airports that I would have had to take.

My travel coordinator then booked me on JAL , with 4.5 days in Tokyo both ways to find a connecting flight to Sydney. The Japan Airlines. I had a strange connection having JAL hotel in my neighbourhood 

Coming back to the experience in Tokyo since I had nothing to do for the 2 days each time I spent while travelling back and forth I did a lot of strolling around the city, saw a few places shopped for some food items which seemed unusual  the sushi thing was not that big back then. So seeing see weeds floating in soups made me feel a little eery. However the bakeries fascinated me even though that is not what they are famous for I found many bakeries on the streets which seemed like assembly line productions. There were sections for kneading, baking , filling, packing nothing meddled into each other.

I survived on chicken in ginger sauce and teriyaki chicken for those 5 days due to lack of awareness on food items and based on warnings given by friends about tofu stinks. I hope to relive this experience with friends and families again but until then keeping up on the blogging marathon theme for myself to cover the countries I have personally visited, Japan had to be on the list.



I put together a meal with Tempura as starters , followed by Paneer Teriyaki with white rice, Soba Noodles in ginger sauce and Green Tea Icecream
