Waterloo Bar and Kitchen is a very bad restaurant. I am just telling you this so that you not, by chance such as me, stumble in there and waste precious money, time and calories on their hideous food.

Discover the Origin – protecting food in Europe.
People who care about the food they eat are increasingly aware of where their food comes from.Â Discover the Origin is an Europe wide campaign promoted by the European Union to enhance the knowledge about the provenance of certain foods. Not only to help consumers with information about the origin of their food but also to protect certain trade names associated with specific locations against imitations, the EU has introduced the concept of PDO (Protected Designation of Origin).

Kyoshi Sushi must be the smallest place I have ever eaten at but also the most charming and cute one. It is too small to be even called a restaurant actually. We found it on Chowhound and it was apparently featured on the Antony Bourdain’s No Reservation programme on US TV (which I have to be honest have not heard of before). And you can look at it here (starts at 1:00 min)

Luckily Kyoto has been spared from air raids during the 2nd world war due to its historical value and has remained one of the world’s most culturally rich cities harbouring 17 Unesco World Heritage sites, more than 1600 Buddhist temples and over 400 ShintÅ shrines. Can I just start by saying – I did not visit all of them. In fact I did not visit very many at all which was not due to a lack of interest but rather to the heatwave which happened to visit Japan at the same time as me. The heat was especially bad in Kyoto and one could not stay outside for very long (longer than 30 seconds) without being completely soaked and close to fainting.

The port town Kobe – even though it is the 6th largest city in Japan – feels pleasant and relaxed whilst still having a cosmopolitan flair to it. I happened to end up in Kobe for a conference and was more than happy to experience this city as my introduction to Japan. It is very close to Osaka and Kyoto, but I don’t think many Western tourists ever find their way there. In fact – before the conference started – I did not see a single Caucasian.

My fascination with Japan regarding its food, its culture, literature and art has been long lasting and only financial reasons have prevented me from having gone there already ages ago. I was absolutely thrilled when it turned out I was invited for a one week conference in Kobe with the flight and hotel being payed! What a great opportunity to hang on aÂ few days and go off to explore Japan.
