Soul lives in silence, space and time.
It flies if you let it go, it hurts if you don’t take care of it.
It’s mystery and poetry, non-sense and abstraction.
It exists but you can’t touch it. Neither see it.
But you can make it a better ship, a sweetest home. Body.
Body lives with food. And drinks.
Japan is a world of food and drink. Truly.
Food is important and everywhere.
Beautiful colored dishes, lovely designed and funny candies, delicately perfumed sweets, anko, mocha, ice cream, tasty meat, exotic fish, yummy soba, strange colored sodas, sweet beers and umeshu, all is good to surprise and delight senses. And feel your body curious, healthy and satisfied.
Cooked. Fried. Baked. Roasted. Marinated. Macerated. Simmered. Coated. Salted.
Words roll and spring in your mouth merrily and so the food when eating it !
Japanese food make you hungry, thirsty, starving, GREEDY !
Simple things often the best of all.
Yaki udon and fried octopus in the small restaurant of Hirauchi on Yakushima Island, yakitori and beer in a backyard in Kyoto, tender beef of Kobe, tonkatsu with black buta (pork) in Kagoshima, takoyaki at Harajuku, decorated bentos for lunch, not to mention the sweet delicacies from anywhere !
Greedy country for greedy people ! Kampaï !!
