I've gotta get the hell out of Tokyo!

New levels of dumb everywhere I turn!

But first a fish burger made by a former Michelin 2-star sushi chef.

Delifucious.

And some deep fried fish sperm.

And some mochi strawberries.

That's better. Honored to learn about the craft of assembling knives from this 89 year old master. Every aspect of knife making is done by a different person. The supply houses assemble the blade with a handle, straighten the metal, and do some engraving work before shipping the finished piece off to its new owner.

Then off to a little island. Three of them actually.

Inujima.

DSCF6553.jpg

Teshima.

DSCF6606.jpg

Naoshima.

Protip: Naoshima is essentially a ghost town on Mondays. Take the early ferry to Inujima and Teshima. Problem solved.

Shikoku is always random.

DSCF6694.jpg

Always.

Go home, Kochi Prefecture, you're drunk.

Eating well these days. I made an unofficial resolution to eat out less, but broke it within hours.

DSCF6911.jpg

Also made an unofficial resolution to drink less.

DSCF6916.jpg

Zomething wrong?

DSCF6968.jpg

But my unofficial resolution of one rad vacation a month hasn't been hard to keep.

DSCF6971.jpg

More to come. By the way, the map at the top is the first thing I see everyday, and hopefully I'll be moving red pins to all 47 prefectures soon. Anyone know a good ramen shop in Yamaguchi-ken?
