One of my favourite snacks of all time! ONIGIRI!! Usually I like buying Salmon flavoured ones but Tako was delicious! And Tuna & Mayo is a classic taste! I’m open to trying new flavours. I kinda like the latter packaging, only because I’m clumsy with the first!

Surviving Japanese Traffic

Japan Oblong

When talking about traffic or transportation in Japan images of fully packed subway carts, lightning fast bullet trains and the ever so famous Shibuya crossing probably pop up in most people’s minds. There is much more to it than that but traffic in Japan is definitely fast, modern and in my opinion, a little crazy. At times it can be daunting but knowing some do’s and dont’s of the system can also make your experience here much more enjoyable.

Here I have listed a few flamboyantly random pointers on how to survive in Japanese traffic based on my own experiences.

It is worthy mentioning that Tokyo is a completely different world in its own and due to it being a mega city everything in Tokyo is just muchmore than anywhere else in Japan.

Chapter 146: Mentaiko (Pollock Roe) Onigiri & Calbee Potato Chips

Mentaiko is a must eat in Japan, it is a great dish, easy to combine with rice, great! I love it too

The Flying Tofu


Mentaiko! A favourite flavour that fits so well with simple rice!! Savoury, with a good balance between salty and spicy. The real thing is sort of juicy and adds flavour to rice, pasta, and spaghetti. It makes an excellent side-dish. Thumbs up to the Onigiri!! What a great snack to have in this flavour, I could eat it all day. The potato chips where sort of dry, maintaining the balance of its saltiness and spice, I had to down a cup of water straight after. Apparently Mentaiko originates from Korea with a few variations.

Chapter 149: Takoyaki (Octopus Balls) & Agedashi Tofu (Deep Fried Tofu with Dashi Broth)

I love Takoyaki, just like Tofu, please enjoy!!

The Flying Tofu


I kinda like the idea of bite-size food! There’s 2 of which I really like, a snack that’ll hit the spot any day. Takoyaki is a must, its addictive dashi flavour and aroma when piping hot hooks me up like a fishing rod. It’s usually eaten with mayo and bonito flakes and brown sauce. Agedashi Tofu is more mild, usually with a savoury broth and garnishes of nori and spring onions. Both just as addictive in taste and causes the happy belly symptom, where you wanna try it again and again.
