Later, went to Ameya yokocho, it's a street in Ueno where most of the Asian foreigners able to find their home country food like Maggie ketchup sauce.
Professor Hirakawa explained the history of this narrow street. It was a wholesale street for candy and chocolates, and later during the world war II, this street became the black market of US goods. The candy and chocolate store still remain till dates, and hundreds of stores selling fish, veggie and etc.
E.T.C includes, Dog meat, live turtle meat, all parts of a pig, cow, goat...
Had some very interesting topics discussed over the lunch table with Professor Hirakawa, like his experience in Italy where all the guest of a restaurant ate lunch together in the hotel kitchen, his experience of buying clothes from a family operated shop in Italy. And we joke about how Chinese eating everything on 4 legs except the table. And the exchange opinions about the Japanese culture. For example, there's no word in Japanese to say 'Privacy', and there's no specify word to say 'どうぞ よろしくお願いします' in English, where by this translate to English it means, 'Glad to meet you and I hope to learn more from you' or in Chinese '多多指教'.
Very interesting place in Ueno. Planning to visit that place again.
