    Strange thing is each time I go Japan and stuff myself with their seafood and red meats I don't get gout attack. Has to do with the quality of their food I think.

    Dare to eat in a radioactive isotope-infested land without scoping the food with a Geiger counter? And pay through the nose while doing it?

    I'll pass, thanks!

    Having been to a few places in Japan I have to say my favourite place for sashimi is in Otaru, a small city just 40mins from Sapporo by train. Its a port city mainly fishery industry and supplies lots of seafood all over Japan. My favourite sashimi restaurant is there Tanaka Sushi so whenever I visit Hokkaido I will specially make a trip to this restaurant.
