:p I regret most of the content/jokes here. 40% of which are cringe-worthy. This is not a blog that I'd want my nephews/nieces ...or anyone to read, actually. but it's still up here because of sentimental reasons. The blog took a lot of time to build & I just don't have the heart to delete it. If you do find the jokes funny - I'm happy to know that they're entertaining. Otherwise, here's a more "proper" one http://coffee-choc.blogspot.com ...prob not as funny, mainly about chocolates and coffee and food & music

Quaint Japanese goods at Yaoko Marketplace, Narita Town

Flights between North America and Asia often involve a layover in Narita, Japan. Since the international airport at Narita (New Tokyo International Airport) is far from Tokyo and in a country that seems impossibly expensive, here are some ideas on what to do during your hours, days and perhaps night in Narita.
I spent most of my time exploring quiant Japanese goods at Yaoko Marketplace :)
I was given a free day-use room at Nikko Hotel.
The hotel provides free shuttle service to Narita town - where Yaoko is located
Yaoko Marketplace a great place for a bit of shopping & a bite to eat. There is a wide variety of prepared food and an area at the front called a cafe. The cafe has a microwave and free green tea.
Colourful cakes
My favourite: fresh scallop salad
Japanese scallops are quite unlike New Zealand scallops;p
Japanese scallops don't have a huge orange colour penis-like thingy

Plenty of fresh fruits
Light snacks

wide variety of rice crackers :)

Yes, we all know that it's meant for a 'home made cake'

Colourful mochis:-)
