I was in Japan (Tokyo, Kawasaki, Shinagawa, Yokohama) for a week in November 2009 and I can't say enough how much I loved the place and the food! Thanks to friends who were such great hosts, I had the opportunity to visit a few famous tourist destinations and tried so many types of great Japanese food.
