Off To Japan

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I'm headed to Japan literally in a few minutes.

Will try to take pictures of gluten-free foods I find in order to make us a reference file.

Will there I'll spend a few days at the worlds largest food show. 8 football field sized exhibition halls with foods from almost every country. Over the years it is been interesting to see the increased numbers of organic and "health" foods but now I'll be looking to see if there are any gluten-free items being shown.

Should be online most of the time but if not, you'll know why. I would miss all the support I get on this forum!

Ken

Thanks all!

Made to tokyo in one piece. Nothing at all to eat on the plane. JAL's food looked good but flaky crossiants were everywhere!

too tired to make dinner or go out.

just want to get my own computer working here.

My office changed from dsl to cable TV and it just does not like my mac laptop.

At least my 6 bottles of san-j soy sauce survived the trip.

thanks again

Sorry to hear about your meals. You should call JAL before the return trip. I used JAL too and requested a gluten-free meal and got one that was safe and I was served first. At the beginning of the flight the came by to confirm it and they put a little sticker on the back of my seat to remind them. Meals enroute are hard! and it's a LONG trip. Take care.

Hi,

I had asked my friend who manages the JAL operations in Kona and he tried to get them to do something but in Hawaii they treat it like a domestic flight and dont offer much in the special meal catagory. Would have been ok with a fruit plate which they also didnt have.

Might have more luck on the return flight. Being one of the celiacs who gained a bunch of weight after diagnoses, I figured not eating was good for the diet<G>

take care
