Hello, hello! We are sorry for the long hiatus. Things got busy, then we went on vacation, and now here we are. We have several stories to share from our trip to Japan. Here is the first one!
We actually had an amazing meal at this restaurant– it was just really awkward when the owner kept calling Mr. P “Donald Duck.” Since there is a Disneyland in Tokyo, I couldn’t help but wonder if he thought we were pranking him. The language barrier was quite difficult to deal with since we don’t speak Japanese and many of the restaurants we went to didn’t have English speaking staff. We’ve been to so many countries, but Japan might have been the hardest to communicate in. Interestingly, the “must-try” restaurants that are popular among food tourists usually had the least amount of English spoken and random places we’d stumble into usually spoke more English (probably to attract tourists in).
