Japan for the Weekend

Could you manage a trip abroad in just three days? No airplane required.

Let's take a short trip!

Every March during Japan Week in Grand Central Terminal's Vanderbilt Hall, Japanese culture, cuisine, technology, trade, travel are celebrated in great fashion. At the Japan Week celebration at Grand Central Terminal, you'll be able to taste regional Japanese cuisine in convenient bento boxes, high-quality sake and whiskey at a tasting bar, and learn about Japanese culture, trade and the latest technology.  This year, the event was held for three days from March 6-8, however you can continue exploring regional Japanese cuisine at many participating restaurants in Manhattan since Japan Restaurant Week runs until March 16th. 

I picked up the Kanimeshi Ekiben, Crab with Egg, Salmon Roe, Pickled Plum Ume  Over Rice, since it looked appetitizing, and it was something I haven't tried before.  It was perfectly packaged, and the combination of salty, sour, and sweet flavors complimented each other very well!
