I got crabs in Japan

I found them!! Ever since watching that. Japan episode of Top Gear, I’ve wanted to try the little crunchy crabs that Jeremy Clarkson got for a driving snack. Happy to report they’re quite tasty and moreish if you’re into flavours such as ikan bilis and dried cuttlefish. Don’t think I can bring any home, but I’m satisfied now.

We just got into Kyoto today. Shinkansen ride was really smooth, I slept almost all the way using my new butt cushion as back support. Very comfy. Can’t wait to be the most comfortable person in economy class on the flight home.

My butt cushion, also known as the ‘Bagel Cushion’, meant for hip support, lumbar support or as a headrest as desired. It’s not exactly the same as the ‘Beauty Shaping Butt Cushion’ at the Japan Trend Shop website, but it was a quarter of the price and folds in half for portability. :D

Just enjoyed some takoyaki, made fresh at a cornershop a block from where we’re staying. There’s an udon place nearby too, a curry house, a ¥100 shop, a couple of general stores, a botanical garden and a tourist bus that does the rounds of the city. So far, I like Kyoto best. It’s quieter, cleaner, less crowded, pretty. I look forward to drinking Suntory and playing Oh! Edo Towns this evening.
