It’s almost time for my favourite month of the year: VeganMoFo! Starting on Thursday, I’ll be posting every day for the whole of August. As I’ve just returned from a three week holiday, my theme this year could only be: Eating Around Japan. It was the holiday of a lifetime, and the route we followed (in the map above) was the perfect balance of thriving modern cities, peaceful temples, and beautiful scenery. Every day was completely different from the one before, and full of some amazing new experiences. Dr HH and I had been daydreaming about this trip almost from the day we met, so it had a lot to live up to: it did not disappoint.
And I’m pleased to report that the food was also very good! We had some of the all time great ramen, some thrilling twists on tofu (have I just gone up a vegan level by describing tofu as “thrilling”?), and one of the greatest desserts of all time.
So I hope you’ll read along throughout August to discover the numerous incredible things we saw, did, and ate. And if you’ve been considering a trip to Japan yourself, maybe I’ll give you the push you need to go ahead and book it – I’m sure you won’t regret it!
