Between Chaos and Peace

Old and new.  History and new technology.  It amazes me how Japan can be so much of one thing and so much of the opposite of that.

One thing I must admit though, before the trip and many months after, I have been addicted to their cuisine and have been having Japanese food non-stop.  It was an explosion to my tastebuds when I finally got to try the authentic flavors, and I have been hooked since.  It’s the melody of having different textures and flavors, that I think makes Japanese food so amazing.
