The best way to learn about a new place is tasting its food: through the flavors we can know more about the traditions and history of the people who live in these places.
Experimenting with new ingredients makes life interesting and if the foods are especially nutrient-dense — even better. They are so high in vitamins, minerals, and other healing compounds that health experts call them superfoods. In their countries of origin, these berries, nuts, plants, and seeds have been used for thousands of years to holistically medicate the body or just add yumminess to everyday, wholesome meals.

Japan Day 13: Goodbye, Japan!

Shinkensen back to Narita Airport

It's been two and a half years since Son and I went to Japan with Rachael and her family, and it seems I never quite finished posting about the trip! Oops.

However, since I find it helpful to refer back to the trip (especially when other people ask for recommendations), and I hope you all find these posts interesting and informative, I'm going to post about the rest of the trip anyways! (And if any of you go to Japan, let me know! I love hearing about other peoples' trips.)

All the previous posts from our 2012 Japan trip can be found here.

Our last day in Japan was a short one. We took the Shinkensen, all the way back to Tokyo.

Leaving Kyoto Countryside Allison on the train

Of course we had to have some snacks, on the way.

Shumai chips - odd, but addictive!

Goodbye, Japan! We hope to be back soon!

At the airport.  Goodbye Japan!

(P.S. I'm surprised I wasn't charged an overweight fee for my bags - half the weight was from cookbooks alone!)
