It has to be admitted, what I missed most about Japan (besides of course, my friends) was the food.
Doorstop-thick toast with jam.
The indescribably heavenly shiso leaf.
The Hyuganatsu citrus sent up from relatives living in its native Miyazaki.
Jumbo-size chou cream from Cozy Corner.
The mini-cake set at Afternoon Tea.
And a tiny sliver of fudgy cake with huge dollop of whipped cream at the adorable Aila cafe.
So much sweetness in my life of late... I could get used to this decadence.
