Welcome to my blog.
After a few random posts I've decided to dedicate this blog to my life long project of Japanese food
and culture (and my life in general).
Since my first taste of sushi back in 1997 I've been interested in, and frequently been making
My interest in the country and culture started long before and continues to evolve.
I was lucky to finally visit Japan in October 2008 and hope to be back soon.
In July 2012 I visited Japantown in San Fransisco, the next best thing!
Both small and big adventures will from now on, as time permits, be shared with you.
I will post other recipes and pictures too, mainly cooking projects, plants and art projects
(including my new love - making kumihimo braided objects).
I hope you'll find it interesting, and feel free to leave a comment or ask questions!
I write mainly in English, but there will be some Norwegian too, especially posts about things
that mainly have Norwegian interest. Tutorials are bi-lingual.

Growing shiso (perilla)
Good news... the first shiso shots have surfaced! I guess it's about 30-40 sprouts that have surfaced now. It looks really good, just like last year.
Soon I'll replant them in individual pots and they'll grow nice and big. Happy times for me and the other 3 that are waiting for their plants.
If the nice weather continues and spring really is here, I'll try to plant daikon next week.
Hang in there for exciting updates!!
