Back in Japan (June 2010)...Going to Kyoto

Mom and I have left for a short vacation in Kyoto this morning. We will spend 2 nights there.

We took Shinkansen (bullet train) "Nozomi" from Tokyo to Kyoto. It's 2 hours 21 minutes between these station.

We picked up some lunch before getting on Nozomi. I had Bara Chirashi (scattered ingredients over sushi rice) and burdock root and beef salad. The chirashi had fatty tuna, akami (tuna red meat), shrimp, jumbo clam, salmon, salmon roe, etc. Lunch in Shinkansen is always a very fun part of trip. So delicious.
