Japan blew me away. Of all my travels, it’s the last place I visited before 2020 happened (and travel stopped happening) and it’s had a huge impact.
I am constantly reading, watching, learning more and more about Japanese culture & food, I want so much to go back and visit soon. Totally besotted.
This photo was taken in the Nishiki Market, Kyoto at a small standing sake bar which also sold famous pickled vegetables, fermented with miso. I tried the most delicious ume sake, and was a regular at this gorgeous little spot during our time in Kyoto.
I’m thinking a lot recently about visiting Japan again when travel is possible. Where are you thinking of going once you can?
This is a budding post, It's a work in progress
Notice anything missing? This is a budding post, which means although it's mostly complete, I'm still dropping in and working on it. I believe in learning in public, and releasing my thoughts, notes & ideas before they are finished is a part of the process. You can read more about seedling, budding, and evergreen posts here, or give me a nudge if there's anything you'd like me to add.
