At Narita airport terminal 2, I went to a cafe with my parents and friend, while I was waiting for my flight. The cafe was called UCC Cafe Plaza.

I wanted to have something that you can’t easily have in Canada. So, I ordered Cream Anmitsu, a Japanese style of parfait.

While I was in Japan, my family took me to a restaurant where they liked the food. The restaurant name is China House (チャイナハウス) located in Kashiwa city, Chiba.

My family basically ordered what they like.

I think my family said that this is not on the menu: fried squid and potato.

While I was in Japan, I went to Shin-Osaka to meet another friend, who was my senior at school and whom I hadn’t seen for over 20 years! :O

As I only had a couple of hours by the time of my train, she took me an Izakaya in Shin-Osaka station. Osaka is famous for Kushi-yaki or Kushi-katsu, and this place served those. It is deep-fried skewer, e.g., cutlet in a skewer, breaded prawn in a skewer.

She ordered for us. First, this was new to me. Chicken Tataki (RAW chicken!)

Next, of course, Kushi-yaki. Unfortunately I can’t remember what was inside each. (Since each one is breaded, you can’t tell what it is…)

And, there are some additional skewers that we ordered more.
