Cherry Pies, Heaven and Japan

I stumbled across a funny essay the other day. Anyone who has visited or lived in Japan will identify with this one. It’s written by Robert Brady, an American living in Japan.

In response to Robert’s observation that a Japanese expat may have similar yearnings for a particular dish that is simply hard to find in the US (or at least was) – Natto. I have seen a few discussions about the lack of good quality Natto in the United States, unless of course to make it yourself.
