Typhoon Day Means Blog Day – Part 2

Part two of updating you on what all we have been up to lately.

TOM TAM – This is my favorite restaurant in Kamakura, it’s run by a couple or three maybe older ladies and the entire place could almost fit inside my kitchen.  Their food is always good and they are super sweet and friendly.

For my birthday I ordered a couple of knives that caught my eye recently.  I’ve always wanted a set of throwing knives and a small blade to hang around my neck.

Some Food The pumpkin ice cream here is amazing!  It isn’t pumpkin like Americans know it, it’s Japanese pumpkin and it’s just delicious.  Also, for Autumn Equinox I made a small feast for us to celebrate the harvest season.  Cornish game hen, sweet potato and asparagus.

Fastfood – We decided since McDonald’s and Burger King here are different that we will give them a try afterall, specially after BK came out with their special Black Burgers.  It was mandatory to try them and while they were very different they were not something I would eat again, glad we did it once though. 🙂

The taste reminded me of how my mouth tasted after enjoying a lovely cigarette.  Not a flavor I need reminding of even after 9 years.

Last week we went to see Boston (linked so you can listen while reading) in concert in Tokyo.  It was a great concert, we stayed at the New Sanno hotel that night and stopped for Ramen in Shinagawa the next day on the way back home.

I was tempted to continually poke him in the arm.

I have one more trip to update you on but think it’s worthy of it’s own blog post so, typhoon allowing, I’ll have it up later today probably.  We went on a tour a few days ago and have a lot of photos.

Hope you enjoyed my last couple of months, it has been wonderful, exciting and fun.
