A Virtual Taste of Ramen
Ramen is an iconic food from Japan, which can be compared only to sushi in popularity, not only inside but also outside the country of the rising sun. It is said that the Japanese version of ramen originated in the Yokohama Chinatown during the Edo period, evolving for generations into the unique dish as it is known today.
The word “Okonomiyaki” derives from the word “okonomi”, which means “what you like” or “what you want”, and “yaki” means “grilled” or “cooked”. It is a savory, tasty pancake, full of vegetables, seafood, meat and adored by the locals.
Sushi is a Japanese food appreciated worldwide. However, despite its popularity, the famous specialty restaurants can be quite expensive. Some do not even offer menus with prices, making it difficult for customers to order with confidence. Kaitenzushi is reasonable and popular among Japanese families.
This drink consists of flavored tea, often mixed with milk and sugar, with black tapioca balls in the background, waiting to be absorbed. It originally comes from Taiwan and has gained international popularity in recent decades. In Japan, it became popular in the late 1990s and has experienced a resurge in popularity in recent years.
Virtual Harajuku Crepes
The famous French dessert has taken on a Kawaii form in Harajuku, full of cream, sugar, custard, and strawberries. These snacks are a perfect complement to Takeshita Street, full of life and youth. The crepes, Harajuku style, are prepared in front of the client, with a thin, pale yellow dough, which is quickly poured and cooked on an iron, then folded and filled with your choice.
During the summer, temperatures in Japan can be quite high and a little difficult to cope with. But like in many countries, there is always something good to look forward to in summertime. In Japan, this has been kakigori for many years, a delicious dessert perfect for the warmest time of the year.
