Back from Japan with some pics.
Here is the ultra-famous Japanese Beer Vending Machine. Believe it or not this was the first time in my 3 times to Japan that Ive seen one.
This was a beautiful little pond that was off the side of one of the many shrine.
You will never get a fresher batch of sea snails then those I experienced. We literally picked the snails at the beach, washed and boiled them, did the snail removal and ate them tempura style in about an hour time frame. For the record...they tasted a bit like clams.
This was some Hayama Beef. Its about 1 rung below Kobe beef on the quality beef scale. This package would cost roughly 20 bucks in the US.
I just found this funny...the punchline almost writes itself.
