Over the past few weeks I have been exploring some new places around Iwakuni. I have gotten into a rut eating at the same places especially while Jeremy was in Okinawa. Thankfully my bestie in Japan, Danielle, has been pulling me out of being a hermit to try new places. Since her kids are in school now we have the time to go to lunch or coffee every week. We decided to go try out some new places.
Speaking of adventures, on Friday, Danielle and I decided to head to Hiroshima for a quick day trip. She needed to buy a birthday present for friend of one of her kids and wanted to check out the Pokemon Center. I went just for the fun of it. It ended up being a silly time.
Over the past week or so Jeremy and I have been stepping up our cooking at home for meal time. We have been trying to break out of our routine. I'm pretty proud with how we stepped it up. Well, I should say Jeremy. He has done most of the cooking because he wanted to learn new techniques. I'm probably going to gain 100 pounds when he starts culinary school... His food is just too good.
I have received a few emails and messages asking about what eating out in Japan is like. I have talked about some of the more traditional places in my previous posts but now I want to share with you is some of my favorite places.
