Short trip to Japan

Do you have a Cambodian trip report you want to share? Post it here, and feel free to link to your blog if it's a travel blog for Cambodia, South East Asia, or anywhere really. You can ask and answer questions about travel advice in Cambodia or just share your pictures and videos with us. Most people who live in or visit Cambodia have also checked out nearby countries like Vietnam, Thailand, Laos, Myanmar, Malaysia, Indonesia and the Philippines, and you can get to most of these countries by traveling overland, so put any travel plans, reviews or questions here. Discussions about dirt bike trails in here as well.

I’ll be in Narita, just for a day though. Already mapped out some Sashimi.

I could do with a rice omelette as well. (Omurice)

I went all Japanese (food) on the ANA flight from Cambodia. Stomach felt a little fluttery afterwards. Not sure if it was the altitude or just Western food deprivation. Anyone else ever get that feeling?

Took a walk to Diamaru Departmental Store on yesterday and found a great Japanese sushi restaurant. Read that this restaurant serves the Imperial Household for more than a hundred years.

Mostly old experienced men making sushi

How much do you weigh? With all your food blog photos I have a mental picture of a Sumo wrestler :D. Enjoy your trip.
