They put fish in everything, and most of the great eats are grilled meat. Surprisingly, it was among the most challenging countries I've visited as a non-meat eater (including my RTW trip). Still, it's beautiful and I would visit again in a heartbeat! Your warning is spot-on: Japan is not the best country for vegetarians!

I am from the Yakezie (welcome by the way:)). You just made me homesick for Japan! I lived there for awhile (met my husband there--he is from Texas, but was a cryptologist in the Navy while I was studying abroad). I absolutely LOVE katsudon--my favorite Japanese dish. Yakitori is great as well. I also have a degree in International Studies and Environmental Studies, so I find your work to be very interesting. Where in the world are you right now? Hello!

They are supposedly the longest lived in the world but there has been a recent scandal where something like half the 250,000 people over 100 years old are actually not alive, they were just never reported dead! Most would be 150 years old at this point :) I'm not sure how this affects the math, but they are still healthy and live long. My wife's grandmother is in her 90's. Interestingly the Okinawan's are even longer lived than the mainland Japanese (also a different ethnicity). They like to drink a strong liqueur called Aomori, dance late into their gray years, and relax in the tropical air. Sounds like a nice life to me :) I always loose weight when I go to Japan, but its also because people ride bikes and walk more as things are closer and cars are expensive. Of course I'm not in Japan any more and I can say the Balkan food definitely is heavier and adds the pounds.

Haven't ate a lot of Japanese but so far I've enjoyed what I have eaten. From everything I have read and learned they have the healthiest diet and longest life span in the world. Would you consider this still to be true? and do you notice an increase in your health and vibrancy from their diet? I love Asian food!

The number and variety of foods in Japan is truly staggering and difficult for most foreigners to keep up with. And the guide was correct the presentation and experience of food is just as (if not more) important than the taste. its one of the reasons I used "experience" in the title of this article. Lucky for me I have a Japanese Mother-in law who cooks amazing food and imparted her passion onto my wife :) Hey Devin,

For those who don't know, kaiseki is a course menu that is very well prepared. Usually delicious, and usually very expensive. I tried to keep this list a moderate to cheap budget.

I'm missing Japan more and more each day. Luckily I be back this winter for some quality time with the food :) As for camera I don't use anything special as I prefer light and always with me to large SLR (although my wife does have one that use sometimes). So, I use a.....Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H10. It is a nice balance between lense and size. I am thinking I may have to upgrade as I get more serious about my photos, but in general I think it takes great shots.
