We bought these lovely little bowls at the Oriental Bazaar. They had so many beautiful bowls, plates, cups that it was a really hard choice.
Food is a big deal in Japan. The Japanese love their food, and the pleasure is as much in the eye as in the mouth. Everything is presented beautifully, in its own individual dish. Unlike here, where the done thing is to have a full matching set, there, every dish is different. A feast for all senses. I'm just sorry that I didn't think of photographing it all - the food was so appetizing that, most of the time, I dove straight in.
