Jarred in Japan.


My friend Jarred is travelling around Japan for five weeks and is keeping a blog. It's a very funny read as he finds his way around. He hasn't booked anything and is going with the flow, sleeping on the floors of a Buddhist temple and being scared when ordering food – he estimates he's lost a stone in seven days! He went to Koyoshi Sushi in Osaka, as featured on Anthony Bourdain's No Reservations (pictured below). A tiny place with seating for only 10 or so, I think I'd be too nervous to go in by myself but everyone was super friendly, watching to see his reaction every time he tried anything. See his Flickr photos here. I'm dying to go to Japan!

  1. I am adventurous through your blog and your friends.

    Now that doesn't mean I am discontent to live on a farm in the middle of nowhere, but I adore reading about your life and the lives of your friends. It's my punch of excitement every day.

  2. Great tip! My bf says the ONE thing he wants to do in life is walk Japan. He absolutely loved Japan and thought they had the best food ever (we still eat lots of Japanese food at home now). Will definitely check out your friend's blog.

  6. Oooh will have to check this out... I love Japan so! We went in 2008 and I've been dying to go back since. At the moment, we're planning to go back for our honeymoon but that seems so long away! (Impatient? Me? Never!)
