    • I can converse at a basic level but relatives who are Okinawan and live here were supposed to help me (they do not speak English). I also have a printout in kana and kanji explaining my dietary restrictions. Relatives intentions are 100% good but clearly do not understand cross contamination and that even if they cannot see the "mugi" it will still make me sick despite repeated explanations. I also need to be very careful not to offend relatives hospitality as this is a very sensitive time (I am here for research & also due to a recent death in family). So I am on my own. If I knew it was going to be this nightmarish eating gluten free I would have packed a week worth of canned/packaged gluten free food and shipped in a checked luggage bag. I will try to see if I can go to relatives house and boil eggs myself but that probably won't be until Thursday at the earliest. Packaged foods are scaring me at this point as I don't know what is safe to eat - i know that just because the word "mugi" isn't in the label doesn't mean it necessarily is gluten free.
    • Many thanks for this  I'm going to give it some serious thought...
    • Ugg I feel you there huge japan fan here, normally I would suggest nordicware, microwave cooking ware, and buying raw fish, egg,s and veggies then cooking in the steamer, grill plate, and omelette maker for these kinds of trips or bringing meal bars. I have carb issues also and eat ketogenic, while they might not taste that good julian bakery make protein bars that are dairy, gluten free and ketogenic diet approved with low carbs, they also make a grain free granola mix , breads etc. Hmm are you good with Japanese? I can get you some romanized phrases for medical terms, food, and gluten related questions so you can try to talk them over with people. I have not been up there in years but I have a old friend up there who used to be a navy medic and lives near there who I would have help me out with issues and finding stuff. Wish I could offer more help, this last minute kind of thing there is not much  I can do. while "Mugi" Refers to barely gluten is referred to pronounced as "guruten" my japanese is a little odd and rotational. I will sometimes use a polite term of oneself as watashi other times and inopportune use other terms, SOO teaching someone phrases is a bit of a issue for me. I can try to words it as cute and polite as I can think with terms funny how using third person and detaching oneself in speech is considered polite.
