Japanese Food Places Report VOL. 1

In July of this year I saw some Japanese television shows, some of which featured a heavy emphasis on food, teaching me many new places to visit. I was amazed at how it combined fun with learning and how it never got boring to watch. Here’s a compilation of some food places and dishes I’ve found to be noteworthy.

Yamada Ryosuke Coffee Adventures

To wrap things up, here are some screengrabs from a “Sakurai Ariyoshi Abunai Yakai” episode where they followed actor and Hey Say Jump member Yamada Ryosuke and discovered his love for cafe’s, cute things and yummy desserts. No addresses where shared, but still it was a joy to watch.

(Personally, I don’t like how they commented how him liking to go to a coffee shop and enjoy sweets was girly, always throwing hearts around, some boys just like to do that okay?)

I’m mad at myself for only discovering these shows so late.

That’s it for now, I have some more food screengrabs left, but that’s for another time, I’m starting to get hungry =) お楽しみに!
