Across the Sea

While traveling all over the world
There’s so much that you can see
Across the expanse of ocean
So different traditionally

The art work and the cultures
Are as diverse as night and day
Everyone casts a flavor
They all have something to say

Food can be the same everywhere
But in such a different style
If only you can take the time
And stay for a little awhile

We learn that people are much the same
Although in a different way
With hopes and dreams to yet fulfill
And regrets of yesterday

You can look into the faces
No matter where people are
And know what they’re probably feeling
Whether they live near or far

So where ever you go in travel
Learn as much as you can
Cultures are so fascinating
As the generations span!

Hard Rock Cafe

Hard Rock Cafe in Tokyo

Ah, a taste of good ol' USA right in the middle of downtown Tokyo! The building is fairly small, and is located at the end of what we would term an alley, although it is actually a street. Note the Godzilla hanging off the building. Menu is exactly the same as in USA, and the price was the approximate equivalent of $25.00 per person for a hamburger, French fries and Coke.. A first lesson in culture, you don't tip the waitress, it's always figured into the price of the meal. When we tried to tip our waitress, she refused our money.

Nagasaki

Nagasaki

I have taken photos of many people around this world...... But this is one of my favorites. Two completely different generations looking intently at the preparation for a parade honoring Mikhail Gorbachev; who was serving as the General Secretary of the Polit Bureau of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, in Nagasaki, Japan. The photo was taken a few feet from where we dropped an Atomic Bomb on Japan.... There had to be so many thoughts in the minds of these two people

McDonalds Japan Bucks Fast Food Trends

by Steve Levenstein

The Mega Mac... beef beyond belief!

McDonalds is a global presence but each nation has some leeway in what products they put on the menu. Thus, the presence of teriyaki burgers and shrimp sandwiches at McDonalds Japan is no surprise. Their other offerings ARE surprising, however... even shocking - and I'm not talking about whale nuggets, either (though the allusion to great size is fitting).

"Mr. Godzilla, your burger is ready"

No, it's the burgers. Multi-layered, hypercaloric extravaganzas that make the Whopper look like a whimper. Most of the super-sized sandwiches - marketed by McDonalds Japan under the "MEGA" moniker - are sold for a limited time only. Which is actually a good thing, as a steady diet of these monsters would severely limit your time on the planet.

Take the "Mega Terayaki", for instance... made ("built" is perhaps a better word) with two pork patties topped with teriyaki sauce and sweet lemon mayonnaise, the Mega Teriyaki weighs in at a whoppering 903 calories and packs 64.3 grams of fat!

Mega Tamago and Mega Tomato

There's a very good reason why McDonalds Japan continues to roll out new and ever more massive mega burgers - the Japanese love them! Over 3.32 million of the original Mega Macs were sold in their first weekend back in January of 2007, nearly twice what McDonalds Japan product planners anticipated. The scheduled 3-week run was extended indefinitely as a result. For a mere 350 yen (about $3.50), the Mega Mac offers hungry (and you'd better be) customers four beef patties, cheese & dressing along with a trio of sesame seed buns. If you can eat the whole thing, you've just inflicted 754 calories from 45.9 grams of fat on your circulatory system. Now that's gotta heart!

A breakfast that'll break ya

Even breakfast has succumbed to the relentless push for mega-ness: as the new "Mega Muffin" so graphically demonstrates. Calorie & fat counts are not yet available but the numbers have got to be mega-scary. How can they not be, when each Mega Muffin is throwing 2 pork sausages, 1 egg, bacon, cheese, and ketchup your way? And you just know you're gonna hear "would you like fries with that?"... resist that siren song, if you can!

All of this burger bloating seems so out of character for Japan, land of artistically designed sushi eaten slowly and delicately with lacquered chopsticks. The only thing I can think of is that if Godzilla returns to finally finish off Tokyo, he'll stuff himself so full of Mega Teriyaki burgers that there'll be no room left to gobble the Ginza.

A cute little tiny building sat in a lake
What would it house, a little snake?

Or would it be surrounded by fish?
I shall toss in a coin and make a wish.
