Food in Japan (Part 1 of some)


There was a big market held at Toji Temple in Kyoto the day fter we arrived.  It was the last market of the year, and just before the Emperor's Birthday, so things were crowded and delicious.  We managed to eat the vanilla custard filled fish shaped pikelet and the sugar coated fried sweet potato without taking photographs, but the candied strawberries on a stick (above) and the okonomiyaki (below), a delicious shrimp, cabbage and assorted sundries filled rice flour pancake, topped with an egg and smothered in dried tuna flakes, sweet soy and mayonnaise, were both incredible.
