Asian Cafe Bowl Bowl, Narita International Airport Terminal 2, Japan

Richard has had various Japanese foods during the trip including tonkatsu, curry (cheated by having the two-in-one tonkatsu curry rice), ramen, karaage and yakiniku. The next on the list is sushi, and we wouldn’t accept any alternative, even if it means having airport sushi! There weren’t a lot of restaurants available after customs at Terminal […]

Hotel Oak Forest, Hakuba, Nagano, Japan: Meals

Balena, Ishiuchi Maruyama, Niigata, Japan

Balena (バレーナ) is an Italian restaurant near the summit of Ishiuchi Maruyama (石打丸山) that required skiing to and going up several ski lifts, so it wasn’t quite an everyday restaurant that I could just pop in to try. The group had been there before and told me the food was really good; actually, they used […]
