Vegetarians in Japan

These are our vegetarian friends, Craig and Charity. They pretty much go through this game of charades every time they go to a new restaurant in Japan. Veggies and rice are easy to come by, but most foods contain something called dashi, which is a fish based broth. That and bonito flakes (dried fish flakes) are pitfalls for the Japanese vegetarian. Here they are miming the actions for a fried egg, instead of a raw one, on top of their okonomiyaki. The sad part is, all that miming didn't even work---their omelet ended up with bonito flakes on top and James and I ate it for them.
