More About Japan

Whenever we're in London one of the places I most want to visit is the food halls at Harrod's.  Well in Fukuoka our daughter introduced us to the local food halls.  Every big department store has one and we visited a number of them at Mitsukoshi, Daimaicu and  Itwataya.  Not only are they spectacular food halls, but they're scattered with a variety of restaurants.  Below is just a few of the food displays.  I should also note that Japan department stores are gearing up for Halloween.  Our daughter says that this is strictly a grown-up event in Japan.  No trick-or-treating, just grown-ups dressing up and partying.















Love their salads and Mac loved their everything!

  1. I adore your Japanese posts. But today your driving me crazy,,, all the different bento boxes. I can just taste them. The dim sum looks wonderful and the turtle melon bread, I miss it all. I don't live near a good Japanese market like I did in California. So sad.
    Did you eat any street food like Takoyaki (little octopus dumplings) so good.

    Wonderful photos. I can't wait to see more.
    cheers, parsnip

    1. There was street food everywhere. And so many restaurants. Our daughter says there are 22,000 restaurants in Fukuoka. Just walking down the street, picky eater that I am, the food smells drove me wild.

  3. It looks fabulous. I remember most department stores having food halls when I was young but they're mostly a thing of the past here now.

  4. Don't you love trying the cuisine of other countries? I was surprised to see Halloween decorations in Japan. Seems the world is truly getting smaller all the time. Like how we're all Irish on St. Patrick's Day and celebrate Cinco de Mayo in the US, though most people don't even know why it's a holiday.

  5. I enjoyed your last post about Kagoshima, and liked all your photo's, but especially the bullet train.

    On this post the food hall and decoration look very good here, you are certainly spoilt for choice.

    All the best Jan
