    So much food! I would love to try soft roe and monk fish liver someday. By the way, I am planning a trip to Japan. When do you think the cherry trees will blossom this year?

      Thanks. Where are you going to in Japan ? If you come to Tokyo, recently cherry-tree blossoms at the end of March 😀 I think this year, too.
      But Kansai area like Kyoto and Nara, I’m afraid cherry-tree will still have many buds.I wish you will see a lovely scenery in Japan 🙂
