    My favorite food/places in Yamagata, Japan

    There are so much to see (and eat) in my home town, Yamagata, and I though you might find it interesting to see some of my food and art related photos I have from the latest trip to Japan. Not so knife related, but I guessed that people with cool knives are interested in food and art in general as well

    Most of these places are my family friends' and they do such a great job... We both miss these places all of the time. If you know places similar to these in the U.S. (ideally in LA), please let us know.... we have such a bad cravings so very often

    @Nyoi in Sakata




    @Rabi


    ... can't remember the name of this sushi place... but please take a notice at one of those rolls with maguro sticking out


    @Kanro in Yamagata (city)




    @Iseki-san's


    @Tamakan, Sakata








    ... from random places around my house


    @my nephew's school (healthy school lunch - they never use the same menu throughout the year. great benefit of having its own nutritionist and cooks there at school)


    @my sister's gallery

    I think eel for unajyu (unajyu comes in a square box, and unajyu is in a round bowl) is grilled, and has very thick source on it... they are sweet and tasty. I used to hate the skin, but after eating at Tamakan I overcame the fear of eel skin.

    Eel's bone fries was uber great, crunchy and salty

    someone please open up a unajyu restaurant here in LA!

    That one sound great too. The one I was wondering about is.


    Thank you for posting such beautiful pics. Just tried some eel a few months ago, and am now really interested in it.
