thecommonfoodie I was busy this morning getting stuff ready for a hearing so I forgot to post my yummy breakfast to give me fuel to last through the hearing. I missed Portuguese Sausage while I was gone. #latepost #CircusLife #Work 16h

thecommonfoodie Some more omiyage from my Japan trip. Vanilla Ice Cream and Strawberry Cheesecake Kit Kat. I also found Chili Pepper and Wasabi Kit Kat, but thought that people would prefer the flavors I bought more. 2d
  •   thecommonfoodie Oh yeah, and I found Pumpkin Kit Kat for Halloween! 2d
  •   kalokat The wasabi one is pretty good 2d
  •   wuzzyangel Wasabi doesn't even taste like wasabi. My faves are the cola, ginger ale, & cheesecake! 2d
  •   pintsizegourmets Wow! They have new ones :) We like the Strawberry... A lot! 2d

thecommonfoodie I'm already busting into my omiyage. Yes, I bought more omiyage for myself than I did for others! Hahahaha!! I always wanted to try Tokyo Banana! So glad I did because this is even better than a Twinkie! 2d

thecommonfoodie Because I was denied the first time when I was flying to Japan, I was finally able to eat the Bibimbap on my Korean Air flight back to Honolulu today. I was definitely impressed. #latepost #TCFvacay 3d

thecommonfoodie This is my first time seeing Tokyo Skytree! We didn't have time to visit Skytree, but on a clear day like yesterday, I'm sure the view from the observation deck was fantastic! #latepost #TCFvacay 3d
  •   melissa808 I should go there 3d
  •   thecommonfoodie @melissa808 After reading about it and seeing a documentary on it, I was looking forward to seeing it in real life. So pretty! 3d
  •   melissa808 What's nearby-ish so I can group things together in a day? I assume Asakusa from your previous pics... 3d
  •   thecommonfoodie @melissa808 Yup, Asakusa Kanon Temple is close by and a ton of shops and restaurants. The Asahi Building with the "golden poop" is nearby as well. Have fun! Hopefully you will get a chance to go up to the observation deck. They will close it if the winds are too strong. 2d
  •   melissa808 Mahalo! 2d

thecommonfoodie After getting up at 5:00 am this morning to disembark the Diamond Princess and a bus tour of Mt. Fuji and Hakone, all I wanted to eat for dinner was something simple. The Chinese restaurant downstairs of our hotel fit the bill perfectly. #TCFvacay 5d

thecommonfoodie After the 5th Station, we headed back down and ate at the restaurant Fujiyama, which had another gorgeous view of Mt. Fuji. So majestic. After two typhoons, Mother Nature decided to give us a break in the weather. #TCFvacay 5d
