    My Japan food photojournal - kujira, basashi, fugu, okonomiyaki and more....

    Nice photos! Makes me hungry.
    My wife still has nightmares about kujira. Apparently, it was a pretty standard school lunch item when she was a kid.

    Heh, most of the japanese people I talked to about kujira were like 'why would you eat that when there's tuna?" or "I had that in cans growing up without a lot of money". But it was tied for favorite meal of the whole trip. I guess it's how it's prepared.

    And I know some school lunches in Shizuoka still had kujira or iruka up until at least last year. There was a big stink about it, what with mercury and all.

    Yeah...I wouldn't be able to choke that down if I knew what it was.

    The "Manly Parfait" looks pretty interesting though. What's in that?
