Tokyo '06: Steakhouse Hama!

It was a typical Harner-Yoshida reunion - over delicious food!

En route in the nicest, cleanest cabs in the world!

How cute are Keiko and my oniichan (Yasushi)!? My lurking Ojichan too!

My obachan and mom out of focus but only literally (don't know exactly what this means but it feels right)!

Let's start with some abalone shall we? Japanese tip/wives tale for pregnant ladies: if you are expecting a daughter and you eat lots of abalone, your daughter's complexion will be beautiful:

Me and obachan! (I can't figure out the weird shadow cast over my face):

Oh the steak:

Was so soft, flavorful and mouth-watering:

It's hard to describe:

But easy to taste and to recall tasting::

Voila - in little bit-sized pieces which if I could have all my food that way I would!

On our way out we spotted the raw goods:

Jonah's very patient with my photo-taking:

* Let me now state for the record that according to my palette, Japanese steak is the best steak in the world.

The weird shadow on your face is probably the flash reflecting in the beer glass :)

Those steaks look excellent!

I came accross your blog while looking for neat pictures of Japan. I lived in Japan for some years and traveled all over Asia.

I now live in the Seattle burbs where my encasement in a house, car or cubicle has made me fatter and less sociable. I miss Japan like a favorite uncle. Oh well, at least there are adventures like yours on the net for people like me to vicariously live through. I could almost smell that fish sizzling (nostalgic sigh).

Here I sit on my night run with a can of Spagettio's looking at that feast. Why, why, why! I have steak envy.
