Comments: "In a city where food presentation is elevated into an artform, this store peddles food pornography of the most sordid and explicit kind. I'm surprised the wheels of my chair didn't go rusty from the dribble trailing from my open mouth. From the displays of unbearably beautifully fruit to the softly cascading clouds of dry ice that caressed impeccably fresh fish in dream-like soft-focus, this store is nothing but a delectable series of temptations." -(Loretta) Link, Map.

4 years ago, the bottom floor of the Hanshin department store in Osaka (Umeda) was my favourite place in the whole world. I hope it hasn't changed because I dream of it often and wax lyrical about it regularly. Miles of freshly made tofu, miso, noodles, bentos etc. to take home, all available to sample before you buy. All the fresh fish, meat and vegetables you can imagine, and in the corner a hot food section with udon, curry rice, okonomiyaki, takoyaki. A sushi bar and a Chinese food section, and you can watch them make the desserts behind windows....
