Food in Japan

The more I travel, the more I realize that the majority of ethnic restaurants in North America are not serving up what the locals would eat back home. Sometimes this can create issues when travelling. A dish might have the same name but be prepared differently from what we're used to. This has been steadily happening to Julia on this trip.

I'm not always 100% sure what I'm eating and once in a while I'll say a little prayer before biting into something (whew, it was only a potato)Lots of fish, rice and pickled vegetables.  Many restaurants will have plastic replicas of the meals they are serving inside.
