Japan 11/09/2007 - Hakone Village

   
Sharp! I'm not sure I want to put anything sharp in my mouth...   Dango is grilled, terriyaki rice dough balls (kind of like mochi). Unfortunately, I didn't particularly like the sauce.   Fuji Cookies - a very tasty shortbread cookie shaped like Mount Fuji

   
Kimu-tama. Kimu = Kim Chi, Tama = Tamago (Egg). Basically a kim chi pickled egg, but it wasn't that pickled and it wasn't that spicy, it basically tasted like a pretty standard soy egg to me, perhaps with a little (but not enough) kick.

   
Here is some fresh steamed manju. The sign reads fukashi tate manjyu, but I only know what manju is. Under that it reads tsubu-an and koshi-an, which means chunky beans and smooth beans (azuki red beans that is) and the last word is dore-demo but I don't know what that means either. The price is ¥70 each or ¥200 for three. These were awsome hot and put the packaged ones from yesterday to shame. The two types were distinguishable by the logo on top.   Another latte drink.

   
Wasabi ice cream. It's cold and sweet so it tastes pretty good, but if you eat it too quickly, the spiciness from the horseradish catches up and overwhelms you.   An example of the fine wood work mosaic that Hakone is known for.

   
A Subaru Forester STi. Wish I could get a STi version in America but oh well.
