The more you fight with any obsessions the more of them you get. Onigiri – not only a perfect breakfast idea, but also a great snack with various fillings. Anytime.
Buying food in Japanese supermarkets, for example as Lawson, is a fantastic adventure, since unless you do not know Japanese language and food, there is no way to guess what are you choosing. Surely you can judge by a smell, texture or consistency, however, trust me, it is not obvious. But it is fun for sure so I recommend to everyone to play this game and enjoy the results.
My big dream was to visit Japanese ice cream shop with fancy, quirky and not obvious flavours. Actually instead of looking for something very unique and not for the masses, I tried quite known brand in Okinawa Naha, Blue seal. Enough to try something new among flavours like: Ryukyu Milk tea, Shiiquasa Sherbet, Ube, my favourite Beni-imo, Okinawa Salt cookies, Okinawa Ta-imo cheesecake, Choco Matcha.
Beniimo was my favourite. I guess I was not the only one with such opinion as Okinawa people decided to make most of the sweets with Beniimo feeling. Do not think there is any enormous magic behind this name, as Beni Imo means sweet potato. Bit this is what I love in Japan, the they can use very simple ingredients to prepare a fabulous meal.
Lactic acid drink was one of the worst surprises at least for me. Strange, however refreshing during warm Okinawa nights or afternoon flights to Tokyo.
