Japanese Veggies

Newer Older

One big perk about living in Japan is the food. Pretty much hard to get a bad meal here even on the cheap.

In addition its not hard to buy (mostly) local grown fresh veggies and fruits at local stands all throughout the city/country.

Non-HDR and non-artsy shot taken with my new Pentax K-7 of one such stand while I was bicycling to the in-laws last week.

Tokyo, Japan

    I love this! It's great, I looked at it in larger size to see all the different veggies.

    I try and go to the better quality grocery stores so I get the better perishable foods. I wish we had more little local stands like this. I see them sometimes way out in the country, in farmlands.

    I'm starting a new athletic diet soon which requires a lot of fresh fruits and veggies. I'd have a field day over here!

    P.S. the best breakfasts I ever had were in Japan. Overall, the food is just healthier over there.
