This is a volcano that we could see on our walk down Ijen on the island of Java. The sun was coming up and you could see a few volcanoes poking up through the clouds. It’s a stunningly beautiful part of Indonesia.
Mmmmmm mmmmmmm this is a tempura noodle dish from Ebisu (http://www.takayama-ebisu.jp/emenu.html) it’s a small soba restaurant that’s been in the area for over 100 years. They were by far the tastiest soba noodles that we ate in Japan. I also loved the English menu which was beautifully drawn and came with extremely useful how to eat soba illustrated instructions. Loved it and would highly recommend!
