    This country has the best drinking snacks ever… so long as you like salt and fish, of course. Me, I like the peanuts mixed with tiny fish, whatever that’s called.

    Dear Goodandbadjapan,

    for sure I love reading your comments and I have to confess I agree with you mostly, but today I have to say, you are stating for me the worst example of Japanese cuisine. I do love Japanese food, but being around someone who eats Kakinotane is torture for me. Just a small hint of this smell and my natural vomit reflex kicks in. I am truly happy for those who love Kakinotane, but don’t eat it around me, please.
    I had even asked my now husband – when we were moving in together – to promise not to eat Kakinotane in front of me.

    All the best from Tokyo,

    Sibylle Ito

    • I don’t eat them that often but find that when I start I can’t stop. I agree with Mr. S that Japan has excellent beer snacks (and sorry to say I think kakinotane is one of them!) I feel much the same about uni, as you feel about kakinotane, but loads of people love it!

        I love uni! However, there’s bad uni, and there’s wonderful uni. Still, I must say a woman should never take a lover who does not love uni.
