OK. I've worked in Japan for some years and I understand that this is the letter of the rule, but I feel that even the most place-a-lump-of-coal-between-my-butt-cheeks-and-I-will-turn-it-into-a-diamond hard-ass Japanese business person isn't that hard-ass anymore. I don't think they've ever been with foreigners. They expect us to be bumbling fools who know nothing about nothing and they're right. The result: the bar has lowered. Much.

Did you know there is a cherry tree in Japan that is over 1500 years old?

Usuzumi Zakura (淡墨桜) is located in the picturesque Neodani Valley in Neo Village, Motosu about 28 km from Gifu City.

Usuzumi Zakura is truly an impressive cherry tree and should be seen by any fan of cherry blossoms in Japan. Bring along a picnic basket and blue plastic sheet and make the most of the beautiful hanami season.

It's surprising to me how many high restaurants here are popular for serving breakfast food. I've seen long lines outside of a pancake shop! 

But if waffles are your thing, head over to NOA Cafe in Ginza.

Those with a sweet tooth will be delighted to know that Ginza's cafes have a strong focus on dessert. From cakes to parfaits, there's no shortage of sweets to choose from in Ginza, but one of the items most favored by locals is the humble NOA CAFE waffle.

While kaiten sushi isn’t typically known for its quality, it is appreciated for its affordability. However, as GP Contributor Lisa Hong found out, Katu Midori is able to provide both.
