Foreign Friday


Some of the restaurants in Japan had small grills in the center of the table which allowed guests to prepare their own food.

Notice that we are seated on cushions around the low table. All of these women, as well as those at the table in the background, were teachers in Misawa and flew to the northern island (Hokkaido) for the Sapporo Snow and Ice Festival. Previous posts about the festival can be found here.

  2. When I go out to eat, it's to get a break from cooking, but I can see how it could be a fun experience with a group. We went with a large group to a fondue restaurant once and had a great time.

  3. What fun! I'm always intrigued by the eating on low cushions thing. I like a booth, so I suppose it isn't so different?

  4. Umm..umm good. That looks like fun. Reminds me a little of the days when we'd put the fondu pot in the middle of the table and cook our own chunks of meat. Sitting on cushions at a low table would be very different!

  7. I have yet to experience that kind of japanese food, but it looks delish.

    I read your post on crocheting, and had to laugh,that's me. I just can't get the hang of keeping all the stitches the same tension.
