Japan Food Trip: Osaka and Kyoto

Leave a comment Standard

There are plenty of good reasons to go to Japan and exploring authentic Japanese food is definitely one of them! Our Spring trip took us to Japan’s Kansai Region and we were able to taste some of the amazing food from Osaka, aptly called tenka no daidokoro (โ€˜the countryโ€™s kitchenโ€™), as well as Kyoto and Nara. Our food trip was based on what we wanted to try at that moment so it would usually go like this:

Mommy Bunny: “What do you want to eat?”

Daddy Bunny: “omurice”

Mommy Bunny: “Okay” *opens Google and searches for “omurice nearby”*

We dined at some hole in the wall restaurants, food court at the mall, and some apparently popular places during our week-long trip. We’ve barely just touched (or ate) the tip of the iceberg but here are some of the oishฤซ food that we tried.

Konnichiwa! The Travelling Bunchies just came from a week-long trip in Japan to celebrate Yui’s 9th birthday. The highlight of the trip was celebrating her actual birthday exploring Kyoto in kimonos.

And boy, I’m glad that we did! It was such a surreal experience and one thing that will definitely be carved in our family memory bank.
