Japan is a very wet country, so you can definitely find many rivers. But in cities, rivers seem very artificial. Their courses are straight, or have an unnatural curve or angles. The riverbed is often concrete for small rivers, and the riverbanks are also concrete. During rainy season and typhoons, natural rivers can spill over their banks and flood areas. In urban areas, they are controlled. Bigger rivers may be more natural in some places, though. This picture is a river next to my apartment.
“Show Me Japan” is still going strong! This post is taking part in the 10th one.
Last night, I had a good meal at Denny’s. That’s right, it was a tasty meal that I’d like to have again! Denny’s in Canada and Denny’s in Japan are quite different. In Canada, the menu consists of mostly breakfast food 24 hours a day. And they are big meals! In Japan, there is a regular menu and a breakfast menu, which is only available in the morning. It’s open 24 hours in Japan, though. The meals are a bit smaller and are suited more for Japanese tastes.
Last night, I had this meal: hamburg steak with a large bacon steak (yes, it was steak sized), half a roasted onion and fried potato wedges. The sauce was fond de veau (veal broth) with butter and mustard. That was really good! Take a look. Would you like it?
