One kind of food that is not that good in Japan are sausages. There are sausages here and they are not bad, but they all taste more or less the same and it is very difficult to find really good sausages. When I was having dinner at Bottom Cafe, some other people ordered sausages that had been left over from some "let's sleep in tents on the beach" event (in Japan, or at least Hokkaido, you do not go to the beach to swim, you go to the beach to camp and to barbecue). These were some sort of home made/hand made special sausages.Since the got too much sausage, they gave me a small mountain of sausages too. These were excellent.
