Around the World in 80 Days: Day 55, Japan and Food

I’ve written about food a lot, I know.  I kinda like food.  Japan has many wonderful food offerings but there’s definitely a dark side to food where Japan is concerned.  I’m not sure what’s going on so I’m going to try to analyze some of the things I found aggravating.
