Healthy Bento おべんとう

Like other countries, Japanese are more health cautious. I found this 400KCal Obento in Japan. This is very good meal for just 400KCal.

Health in Japanese is "Kenko" 健康(けんこう)
Healthy Obento is "Kenkou Na Obento"

Shibuya Scramble Crossing in Tokyo!!!

In front of JR Shibuya Station, there is a famous crossing called Shibuya Scramble Crossing. Instead of letting pedestrians cross the street one direction at a time, it closes all motor traffic and have people cross the intersection any which way they want.

This has actually reduce the traffic slowdown because there is no pedestrian when the cars are moving. Following the success of the scramble crossing, there are other cities created this crossing like England, NewZealand, Canada and the US.

When you visit Tokyo, make sure to visit Shibuya. You might want to have a cup of coffee at Starbuck looking down on this Shibuya Scramble Crossing.

This is No No

You do no see people eating and drinking in the regular train. If you are on the long distance train like Shinkansen, it is a different story.

There are two reason why you are not welcome to eat on the train.

(1) You will be leaving mess on the floor and seats.
(2) Your food leave smell in the car.
(3) Eating in the places where it is not designed for is not polite.

Unlike Shinkansen, regular train will not have cleaning service for al day, so you should really not suppose to eat anything like what those couple are eating.

Did you know there is a steak house in Japan that sell the meat by the gram and cook it for you. They have just open the store in New York. I found it fascinating to see this restaurant last time I was in Japan.

The steak you see weigh 415 grams ... about 14 oz. It was cooked perfectly and it only cost 2,697 yen or US$24. Next time you go to Japan, make sure you look for this restaurant.
