This is a short post , but very sweet. Do not be fooled, Japan is not about sushi or sashimi or seaweed or seafood. It is not about rice. Forget all of that. Hands down, 100% it is about cake – cake that sends taste buds to nirvana, and so light that it hovers over your fork.
Just one bite on my first morning here and the 13 hour flight (14 hour time change) was all worthwhile.
I have been a noncommittal cake eater all my life but Japan has transformed and for that I am grateful.
