Yama-chan in Osaka

Posted by
Daryl Johnson (Worcester Park, United Kingdom) on 8 June 2008 in Lifestyle & Culture.

Yama-chan is an izakaya (Japanese pub / restaurant) chain from Nagoya. They're famous for Nagoya dishes such as tebasaki (chicken wings) and miso kushikatsu (breaded and deep fried pork dipped in miso sauce). Yama-chan's one of my favourite places, but there aren't any branches in Osaka. So I was very excited when they had a stall at a regional food fair held in Osaka during 'Golden Week' last month...

I apologise in advance if I'm tardy with commenting on your blogs or returning comments during the week... I will get to you though!

There aren't any here either. Why is it, do you think, that the figure has such an anglicized look? That seems to be a feature of Anime as well.

@Twelvebit: I think he looks pretty Japanese (well, except for the birdy bits), but I know what you mean about anime. You'd have to talk to someone who was in to anime I'm afraid!
