Back in the saddle this week. Sorry for the impromptu break, but with all the work needed for the 21 Journeys book launch, as well as finals coming up at my teaching job, I needed to take a break.

Today’s page is dedicated to some of my amazing friends still living in Japan. Especially my friend Emma, she was my first real guide to Japan and it’s culture, and was probably at times more Japanese than even the locals.

This page is also a tribute to my favorite Japanese snack food; onigiri. Simple and delicious, it sustained me through my early months without a kitchen.

Hope you guys enjoy!
