Research

In preparation for our upcoming trip to Japan, David, Anna, and I took a field trip to Uwajimaya; an enormous Japanese market in Beaverton.

Our mission was simple: stroll the aisles and look at things. Appreciate the differences. Pick a few things to bring home and try.

The designer in me just loves this stuff!

So far, we've liked the rice crackers and seaweed products. Not so much with the wagashi cakes.

Great pics! Not sure about mayonnaise that's named after a plastic doll but then again mayo is fairly questionable as food anyway right? :-) The sake looks intriguing.
