The whole object of travel is not to set foot on foreign land; it is at last to set foot on one’s own country as a foreign land.” – G.K. Chesterton

Lunch @ Kojima (Noto, Ishikawa-ken)

It's been raining non-stop for two days now. And when I say non-stop, I mean constant rain. It hasn't stopped since it started, and never seem to have any variation in the heaviness. Coming from sunny Perth, I'm not quite used to it.

Last weekend, we went out for lunch with a fellow Noto JET, Kim, and her non-JET husband, Richie who are from the States. It was a chance for us to introduce our husbands to each other. Very fun people :)

Anyway, we went to a Japanese restaurant nearby my school called Kojima. They serve donburi (meat on rice eg katsudon, oyakodon etc) and teishoku (set meals with rice, miso soup and pickled veges), but no sushi. Oddly enough, Rob and Richie both ordered oyakodon (chicken on rice) and Kim and myself both ordered the sashimi teishoku.

The oyakodon (~700yen or AU$7.70) was quite nice, but Rob and I both agree that the one from Mr Samurai on Barrack Street in Perth was more tasty and better value for money (AU$4.00):

The sashimi teishoku was alright, but the snail wasn't all that fresh and was quite bitter:

We later went for ice cream and dessert and chatted for another hour or so. Although the food was only so-so, the company was very good :)
