After two years of planning, some old friends of ours from Yokohama, Michael and Naomi, have at long last opened their own pizza place in Saginuma!
I can vouch that Michael makes some great pizza. Be sure to check it out if you’re in the area!

An authentic Japanese bento is the last thing I expected to find in Natick.
Following a seminar about the crazy healthcare reform laws that have befallen Massaschusetts, we decided to stop by Oga’s in Natick to see what the rest of the Boston Japanese community was raving about. Wow, we weren’t disappointed.
Though Oga’s looks pricey for dinner, a formal (read: “fancy-ish”) bento box lunch was only about $12. I had a fairly good tonkatsu pork bento (complete with cabbage and sauce), and Miho a really spectacular sushi box lunch.
Oga’s can be a bit far out of Boston on the highway, but worth the trip. Best bento I’ve ever had in the US.
