Recent Restaurant Meals (Yokohama)

The wife and I enjoy eating out a few times a week and Yokohama is full of good restaurants.  We rarely have a bad meal in Japan and contrary to perception, eating out in Japan is relatively inexpensive and the portions are sensible.  Most meal sets in Japan at your average restaurant are between US$7 – US$12 for lunch with dinner usually a little more expensive.  Of course you have your high end restaurants where you can really blow through some cash, but we only visit those places on special occasions.

Here are some set meals we ate over the weekend — Japan is big on the set menu.  Also, last night we came across a great jazz band performing for free in front of Kannai Hall.  It was one of those moments you don’t expect but was a nice opportunity to sit back and take in life.

Japanese food menu set - rice, mini shrimp, miso soup, veggies, and pickles.

As much as I love this country, I wish they put more controls on smoking, but they are slowly making progress.

About runninginspired

I’m in my mid-40s and have been running for about 19 years. I have finished 24 marathons with a personal best time of 3:04. I currently reside in San Diego, CA. I enjoy running since it keeps you honest and will give back what you put into it. Work hard, but smart, and good results will eventually follow. I like to experiment with training plans, gadgets, shoes, and nutrition to find what works for me. The primary purpose of this blog is to document my training and thoughts about running in my ongoing quest to improve my fitness and health.
