It’s a bit of a mystery as to why Matsuya introduced a Georgian dish. As of 2018 there were 58 Georgians living in Japan. The most famous one is probably sumo rikishi Tochinoshin. pic.twitter.com/63kwzuHZK2

Yokohama frequently gets overlooked, dissed, lumped with Tokyo etc. but it has a bigger population than Osaka, with many interesting neighborhoods. Finishing with a view of the harbor from Yamashita Park. pic.twitter.com/gD536GSEhx
