Japanese Food Infographic

Did you know who really invented tempera? Check out this snazzy infographic to find out.

    I love Japan! I will have to get in the habit of saying itadakimasu before every meal :)

    I’ve been to Japan many times and never seen anyone dip there sushi like that. Apply two or three drops of the soy sauce to the top of the fish suffices and eat as normal.
