My random, desktop image of the day is from four years ago this month.

When you stay at a nicer inn in Japan dinner is frequently included in the price. At the fancier places the meal is usually a kaiseki (会席料理) affair of mostly seafood. I’m not a big fan of seafood (although I have enjoyed it to some extent in Japan). So when I booked my room at Iwaso I requested a mostly non-seafood dinner, if possible, even though seafood is the norm. To my utter amazement, sukiyaki (my favorite dish anywhere) was part of the meal.

Happy birthday, Sadaharu Oh (王貞治)!
