Japan, Bungotakada

    I visited a town called Bungotakada locacted in Oita prefecture in the southern island of Kyushu. It is not a large city or a place where you can find many international tourists. Here is where I was able to feel what Japanese culture is about. How people in the countryside spend their days and what the local gastronomy is about. Not only sushi, but incredible dishes I had never heard of, and ingredients I still don't understand what they were. Bungotakada was an incredible experience because I got to stay with a Japanese family, and experience a more genuine environment, unlike anything else I had experienced in Japan. Truly amazing and unique.
