Happy Thanksgiving!

In lieu of makeup, I looked through my photo albums for pictures of appetizing food (surprisingly scarce) and came across this one taken two Thanksgivings ago. My family took a vacation to Japan and we stayed at an onsen ryokan (roughly translated: hot spring inn) for a couple of days. At night, they served us magnificent kaiseki dinners and if I recall, this was one of the appetizers.

All that is just to say, I'm so ready to eat like a pig tonight. Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!


  1. Happy Thankgiving, Xiao!!! The food looks so delish! I hope you'll have a great time pigging out tonight ;)

  2. That all looks delicious! Happy Thanksgiving!

  3. Can I ask which Onsen Ryokan did you go to? Was it easy to book and would you recommend it?

    I am going to Japan next year, so I'd like to know. :)

    Happy Thanksgiving.

    1. We went to Kansuiro Onsen Ryokan. I didn't book it so I don't know how hard the process is, but this is the website:

      I definitely recommend staying with them. The service+food was impeccable and you will be nestled within the trees. Location was convenient too as it was near the train station. It was very very pricey though.

  4. Happy (belated) Thanksgiving, Xiao!! I've always wanted to go to a Japanese hot spring inn (ever since I saw it in an anime I watched a long time ago!! :P)

  5. Oh, but that does look delicious! LOL forget eating like a pig on Thanksgiving, I've been doing that all break long. Happy belated Thanksgiving :)
