Our trip around the Tohoku region has come to an end, we’ll definitely revisit. We left Matushima and briefly shopped at Sendai. Picked up some bentos at the B1 of a department store (B1 are amazing places…their the Rodeo drive version of Whole Foods, Dean & Deluca, and Extraordinary Desserts combined) and took the bullet train back to Tokyo.
We’ll stay in Tokyo for a day to catch the Tokyo Bay Fireworks before heading onto Nagoya. In Tokyo, I wanted one of my favorite comfort foods, omu-rice (rice Omlette). So we headed to Taimeiken. I had the Tampopo-style omu-rice, named for the style featured in the movie Tampopo. Yum.
