my intention was to eat local fare exclusively throughout my trip so i indulged in, of course, raw fish, but also deep fried hairy crab, pickled bamboo shoots, dried octopus, green tea ice-cream, roasted beans and many other japanese delicacies.

i was most disappointed in the sweets as the sugar content is much lower than i had expected: i’m used to the western level of sweetness, perhaps not such a good thing…

as far as the savory dishes and snacks are concerned, i have no complaints: they were…. yummy! i already miss some of them!
