Welcome to my blog.

After a few random posts I've decided to dedicate this blog to my life long project of Japanese food
and culture (and my life in general, especially my travels).

Since my first taste of sushi back in 1997 I've been interested in, and frequently been making
Japanese food.
My interest in the country and culture started long before and continues to evolve.
I was lucky to finally visit Japan in October 2008 and hope to be back soon.
In July 2012 I visited Japantown in San Fransisco, the next best thing!
I was lucky to be back in 2015, 2016 and 2017 thanks to the fact that we now have family living in California.
Both small and big adventures will from now on, as time permits, be shared with you.

I will post other recipes and pictures too, mainly cooking projects, plants and art projects
(including my new love - making kumihimo braided objects).

I hope you'll find it interesting, and feel free to leave a comment or ask questions!

I write mainly in English, but there will be some Norwegian too, especially posts about things
that mainly have Norwegian interest. Tutorials are bi-lingual.

Back from US!


I hope you are all well! I´ve had an amazing summer, visiting California, Holland and Copenhagen together with Mr. Linuz and mini-me.
We spent 3 weeks in California, mainly in the Bay area. We also made trips to Yosemite, LA, Point Reyes and wine country. More pictures later!

While in San Francisco I visited Japantown.... to get various items and to eat Japanese food off course.
My little girl got a new yukata and a fan, she is so happy!


Not conveyor-belt sushi - sushi on boats in water! I even had toro - it was lovely!

I haven´t braided in 5 weeks or so, and on returning I got sick and had to spend a week in bed. But last week I got the energy back and started experimenting with some new braids. See the first one under:


I also got 2 custom orders, so I´m buzy this week!
