I enjoyed reading this report on Elio and his restaurant’s excellent work in Rikuzentakada.
Thanks so much for sharing this.
I enjoyed the other food articles, too, and hope I can eat my way through Tokyo as you have.
Beautiful photographs, amazing knowledge of the food, and very engaging writing!

Thank you for sharing the site with us. I probably do not ‘understand’ what is meant by ‘obliterated’ (as mentioned in Rikuzentakata). But your pictures and words are not ‘obliterated”; they linger in my mind. Mike, you are a person with many different talents and faces! I felt I got to know you better.
Thanks Atsuko, I appreciate your comments. I am at a loss as to what I can do for Rikuzentakata. I will go back again with Elio to help out. If I have a talent for writing, then I would like to use it here to make more people realize what has happened to our neighbors in Tohoku.
