Some food related travels marked down in Japan include:
• Shin-Yokohama Ramen Museum
• Kappabashi Market (famous for plastic food models and the place where chefs and restauranteurs go to shop - I hope to get some random kitchen gadgets)
• Yokohama Chinatown (I want to check out the Chinatown in Japan and for once during the trip I will actually be able to converse with the locals in Chinese...I have not made much effort to learn Japanese although I expect a lot of people to come up to me and start talking to me in Japanese because I am Asian)
• Daimaru Food Floor
• Nishiki Market
I am also looking forward to airplane food. Airplane food doesn’t always taste great but it always makes me feel special with everything coming in little packages and getting minature sized products. It’s an experience and it means I am heading somewhere on a journey.

Another holiday I have planned this year is a trip to Sydney in October when the Sydney International Food Festival is on. I have only really experienced about 24 hours of Sydney, I guess when Melbourne is next door the preference is to travel to Melbourne but this year I’m giving Sydney a chance to impress me and I will eat my way around town.
See you in August. I’ll blog about my Japan food endeavours then!
