Now that I'm back in L.A., I miss the food in Japan terribly.
I'm glad this city at least provides some decent ingredients to cook Japanese cuisine.
Missing food before missing someone may sound quite voracious, but food is always connected to people and by missing food, I'm really missing many persons: farmers like my relatives who grow produce with care and pride throughout the year, my mother in the kitchen who has always been cooking for my family and even the restaurants that provide each customer with considerate service and warmth. Then of course, there are each and every one of those whom I've had the pleasure of sharing the dining table with. Home is where food is truly good.
Thank you everyone for another amazing trip!
I love you all very much.
