Bento box lunch á la Sushi

June 25, 2008 1 comment

For lunch or breakfast, bento is a remarkably fresh & organised cuisine ready to go (sloppy junk-burgers with dripping dressing soaked in trans-fat oil, that’s a NO NO!!!!)

The bento box concept originated…(i don’t know). But you can buy it practicaly everywhere. And it is such a nutritious strike of geniosity, no wonder the japanese keep working all daylong…

Sushi edition include: egg, to the far left is Tunafish (not hermitacly selaed tin-can edition), king shrimp, squid, salmon, omelette and ikura (salmon roe/giant caviar)

Bambooo leaf (-substitute) is usually brought into the mix, so the different ingredients wont showell, turining into a bento-mess.

Yum (^_^*)

Akihabara, the dark side of peace & harmony

On the surface, the Japanese seem exceptionally well adjusted, smart and content. The concept of Wa, states the importance of working and living together in peace and harmony, avoiding confrontation is essential.

And it looks good…on the surface!

Proverb of the day “Deru kui wa utareru” Its better to conform than to stand out. (Or maybe not?)

The miniature Godzilla and life size whale of Tokyo

The Godzilla statue is hidden deep inside the heart of Ginza, hard to find. Espezially when you keep looking up at the sky for a cosmic edition…

A bit more eye catching though, the life size blue whale located outside the national science museum..

Last Saturday of July, Tokyo sky turn into a sparkling showdown between two rivaling firework companies.

Starting with just a slight `puff ´at sunset…

Then later, darkness and people conquer the streets…the unbelievably clean streets. No need for sofas..

Rooftops, for photo ops…

Eating off the floor is for people with low standards cornering cleanness. Eating off the road on the other hand…broom and shovel, just wont cut it!

The brave & proud street sweepers must be exhausted…that’s for sure.

Fat people vs. skinny people

An “unusual” classification of people. The concept though is universal, everyone entering a public lavatory must be separated and classified. If not, there would be total caos and confusion…right?

fat versus skinny people

And for people who are not too fond of their apperance (in the sharp revealing fitting room light), a tool to tackle the obstacles of life in the modern beauty oriented world is provided. Very convenient!
