Krispy Kreme Doughnuts
Jay said "I actually prefer Dunkin Donuts myself though."
I wanted to ask to Jay about Krispy Kreme "How is it?"
Thank you for comments Jay!!

In Japan, there is a Krispy Kreme Doughnuts which is a first shop. And a lot of people wait to get Krispy Kreme Doughnuts in the front of shop . If we want to get Krispy Kreme Doughnuts,
we have to wait over one hour.
One day, I asked a store clerk "Are your Doughnuts great?????"
He answer "Wooo, Yes, our Doughnuts taste very American taste."
I thought what was American taste.
Does your city have Krispy Kreme Doughnuts?

The scooping of the goldfish
When I was young, I used to play the scooping of the goldfish in the festival. And I leave the goldfish in our pool.
He said we must not fight gravity, when we play the scooping of the goldfish. It is difficult to do that. It is easy to break the net of paper.
Have you ever played the scooping of the goldfish??
Recently in Japan we don't have chance to play the scooping of the goldfish which are real .
Usually the goldfish are imitations.

If you come over to Japan, you should have Tonkatsu. So you know Japanese cuisine, "Sushi".
But if you want to have meats, you try to have Tonkatsu.
You go to big Japanese cities, you can find Tonkatsu in department stores easily.

When you go to Tonkatsu restaurants,
First, you check you can have free refills of rice and cabbage in a restaurants.
Second, you order "Tonkatu teishoku". Teishoku means "a set menu".
Third, you put some special sauce on Tonkatus.
By the way, do you have shredded cabbage? My Canadian friends said we don't have shredded cabbage.
We have shredded cabbage with Tonkatsu.

This Tonkatsu is pork fillet

Foods while traveling Hokkaido
We went to Hokkaido again!! Of course we tripped to Hokkaido by trains.
And we ate Ekiben which are boxed meals sold at stations.

They ate Tonkatsu Bento in trains which was sleeping trains. Tonkatsu is a popular dish in Japan. Tonkatus is deeped-fried pork. My sons like it.

I ate rice with clams Bento. It was very healthy.

My husband ate Ueno Bento. Ueno is name of station in Tokyo.

We ate breakfast in a buffet car.

I ate crab Bento in the other day in a train.

We ate ramen in Sapporo, from the capital of Hokkaidō. Sapporo is very famous for ramen.
Ramen is noodle and soup. This soup was Shio ("salt") type which taste was plain.

This is Ikuradon. Ikura is salmon caviar. Don means rice bowl.
