Some things make me love living in Japan. One of those things is shopping in the supermarket in the evening after work and buying lots of reduced food. Admittedly, you can do this in most countries, but in England it would mean soggy sausage rolls and squashed sandwiches. Here, it means sushi and sashimi.
Dinner for two...¥600 (£5). YUM.
PS - Today, I saw an actual real live flower. Growing outside. Spring might actually come to Sendai this year after all.
OK, so they're only buds. But we're getting closer!!
