As good-humored and, I am sure, benignly intended the above discussion and exposition of other cultures' "necessary" facilities has been I believe that we all can agree that ...it all went South so fast!
 
As it presently stands I regard this discussion to be graffiti; we've had our fun, now it's time for a little sand-blasting.
 
So, I would ask the moderators to declare recess to be over and excise this defacement of this otherwise magnificent thread.  Please.
 


I took my posts down out of respect to BB. Anyone else?



With all the deletes and edits I think we have all pretty much left the bathroom.  And, after washing our hands, are again able to discuss food.
 
And I must say that the pictures Cliff & Mariton have shared are truly magnificent.  Maybe this thread will help me convince The Princess to give East Asia some consideration for our next trip abroad. 
 
Thanks, Cliff & Mariton!

As much as we enjoyed Osaka, it was time to move on.  We had breakfast at the hotel one last time,


Is Mariton using her chopsticks to flash gang signs?

I finally had a chance to read through the trip report. Your best yet
I even tried to find a local commercial for Daruma in Osaka on you tube, but couldn't find one.
 
I think you're treading lightly with "Big in Japan" as your theme...
 
I think this would suit you much better!

Naah...still treading way too lightly.
I think Blue Oyster Cults "Godzilla" still sums up buffetbuster's gallivanting around Japan.
 
BTW, Blue Oyster Cult are not only local Long Islanders like myself but several of them are "members of the tribe" and also went to my Alma Mater- SUNY Stony Brook back in the day when I was still in diapers and unable to talk.

I have been keeping this close to the vest, but there has been such a positive response to this trip report, it seems like an appropriate time to let my Roadfood friends know why I haven't been posting.
 
My mother had a heart attack.  As she said, if you are going to have a heart attack, having it at the cardiac unit of the hospital is a pretty good place to do it.  She underwent an emergency triple bypass, but the doctors weren't happy with the results, so four days later they did a double bypass and a valve replacement.  She has progressed to the point where she did get moved out of the ICU over the weekend, but at age 82, recovery is slow. 
 
Needless to say, this has been extremely stressful and I have not been in the proper frame of mind.  I do promise that I will eventually finish this trip report, since it has been such a blast to write so far.  But, it may be a while.....

Hello Cliff -- Very sorry to hear your news.  It sounds like your mom is a fighter -- two bypass surgeries in 4 days at age 82.  Best wishes to her for her continued recovery.  
 
And, positive thoughts and best wishes for you as you take this journey with her.
 
Kind regards,

Hi Cliff,
Sending prayers your way.  I rarely post but read your and Mariton's adventures in food with great interest.  Your mom is right, if you have to have a heart attack, the best place to have it is in a hospital.
Hoping for a fast and full recovery for your mom.

Best wishes for you, your mom and your family at this trying time. I look forward to seeing the rest of this report, but family takes priority. Here's hoping your mom makes a good and swift recovery.

Cliff,
 
I see that you recognize the blessing of your mother having her attack at a world class medical facility. You also have the blessing of her still being with you as you become middle aged.
 
Our prayers and wishes are with her for a prompt recovery.
 
The world needs your mom around to pull on Clifton's ear and keep him out of shenanigans.

Think positively and count your blessings on Mothers Day and let her know how much she means to you.
That's the best medicine you can give her.
God Bless.

"Ditto" to all the kind thoughts and prayers expressed above.
 
My former Religion Professor (who I'm sure lleechef knows) once had a coronary while performing a pastoral visit at Pitt-Presbyterian.  That was ten tears ago and he's still going strong well into his nineties!  I wish the same happy result got your mother.

Re: Big in Japan 2017/05/17 09:41:46 (permalink) ☄ Helpfulby Sundancer7 2017/05/17 11:29:21
I just wanted to thank everyone for the prayers, get well wishes and general concern for my mother.  It was appreciated more than you will ever know.  Besides the posts in this thread, I also received many private messages, texts and calls.
 
She was moved to a rehab facility over the weekend, where they think she will be for three to four weeks before coming home, as long as everything goes well.  She hates the food and I have been sneaking her in better (healthy) food just about everyday. 
 
When I visited her on Sunday, she was even out of bed, sitting in the chair and seems to be back to her old self.  Even though it was under less than ideal conditions, we agreed there was more to celebrate on this Mother's Day than ever before.
