Day 1 in Tokyo, and we hit the streets early… not because we didn’t want to waste any time, mainly because of the crippling jet lag! We left the capsule hotel at 8am, and within ten seconds Hatti had seen her first vending machine, one of many thousand that populate the city. We found the venders to be largely similar, mainly variations of green tea, but the hope is to encounter machines that serve coffee / pizza / Mexican food etc.
All the preparation for the trip can be hungry work. Although its a simple dish, I thought I would share the recipe for the mushrooms on toast that I prepared this morning. The maple syrup is the real hero in this recipe; I only really thought to use it as we are desperately trying to empty our shelves!
