Drinking Sake, Eating Tokyo, Tokyofoodcast, Found on Showa Day
After realizing that April 29 is the Showa Day holiday in Japan (part of Golden Week), I decided to take it nice and easy for this week's Tokyo Thursdays and feature a site that lives and breathes Tokyo.
I picked Tokyofoodcast written by a couple: Et-chan and Te-chan.
Why them? I like the clean look of the site, their mix of Chou a la Creme and Dining on shojin ryori in temple, add to that their Pursuit of the Perfect Sake with Sake of the Week and I was hooked.
I chose their picture of Funazushi (involves fish roe, thinly sliced fish and fermented rice if I got it right) as an illustration.
When she's not snapping photos, writing, eating, cooking or tasting sake, Et-chan aka Etsuko Nakamura offers personalized English-Japanese guide services in Tokyo and other parts of Japan.
Found my way to Tokyofoodcast via Shizuoka Gourmet, a fellow French expat.
