Very Goodman’s Steak

This is a nice little cozy eat in Yokohama.  Yes, the name is “Very Goodman’s Steak.”  Just take the West exit at Yokohama Station.  Head down through The Daimond – and underground shopping plaza – to Yodobashi Camera.  Take the escalator down to B2 and look for this restaurant.

The reason for posting this is because i think many foreigners take the American fast food option, far too often.  The prices here are very reasonable, great steaks and choices.  Look here:

Nice medium rare; tender and juicy, Aussie beef.  Not my number choice in prime cuts, but will do the trick especially if you’re busy.  This is called the mixed platter: sirlion steak, beef, and chicken.

  1. What's all the red stuff on the steak?

  2. Tomato sauce, the puree version

  3. There are soooo many restaurants serving hot food that it seems pointless to grab a burger and fries at some American fast food chain and the prices are often not that different. A bowl of ramen in a noodle shop would be preferable in my opinion. Yummy!

  4. I like beef so much I'm cooking 3 prime ribs for my next BBQ and 3 Whole "Lau Lau" Chickens (another person will cook those underground).
    But I'd still hit Burger King or Carl's jr for a sloppy cheezeburger any day I can.


    Nice pic BTW

Shin-Okubo: Little Korea

So I finally got around to going up there to Shin-Okubo,  the land of Seoul via the Yamanote Line.  Been putting this trip off for years for personal reasons;  I am not a fan of Hanlleyu.      I knew why I came up this way, and for none other reason than the food, and maybe to bask in the nausea of Korean romanticist who steal Japanese Jukujo's souls.    But honestly, I like spicy food and stews and pickled vegetables that challenge my taste buds.    I also love the little funky cafes that line the main thoroughfares and alley ways, each with their own little eclectic menus and interior decor.     This place is Korea.  





Shin-Okuba represents more than just a place to relish in Korean culinary delights and K-pop culture, but a place where Koreans can express themselves through their culture.    You can feel the local vibe in the air as you're walking down narrow walkways and footpaths.    I have personally been to mainland Korea six times, so a lot of the nostalgia was there …

August: The Return of Souls

August is peak summer season in Japan.  We can look forward to some of the most spectacular fireworks displays and festivals in the world, especially  in places like Tohoku and Kanto regions.  August is also  the most contentious month of the year in Japan; with the end of the war and war-related guilt.    Then there's the great exodus back home for millions of Japanese.   Obon season is what it's called in Japan, and it's  where families return to their hometowns to remember their ancestors and to spend time with loved ones.  Gravestones are visited, cleaned, and washed; rice or alcohol is often placed on  miniature altars next to a  headstone.  This is a way for Japanese to reconnect with their roots; a way for them to stay grounded and founded in the ways of tradition and cultural protocol.   

For the foreign tourist, some places will be overcrowded and expensive to reach; for Japanese, this is normal and can't be helped.   Wherever you go there will be lines and h…

Japan Board of Education: Amazing Grace...?

Japan Board of Education Textbook.
Amazing Grace
Shuken Shuppan  Polestar textbook English Communication

Preface:  Japanese / Japan is  one of the leading donors in humanitarian aid around the world.   They have donated billions of yen to charities, developing countries, and startup business to just about every country on the globe.  Some Japanese have even taken matters to the extreme  to the point of poking their noses into hotspot areas like Palestine and Isreal, things the Japanese may want to avoid.  Had Japan shared its borders with an ethnic minority with its own government, the relative peace and calm of this country would be questionable.   No other country can be like nor emulate Japan.   So, where does this spirit of charity and altruism come from exactly?   Why do the Japanese feel they need to save the whole world, while caring very little for its own people?   It's the Board of Education...?  The essay below is one such example of what Japanese kids learn in school,…
