Japanese German Hotdog, originally uploaded by julesberry2001.

More James food. This basil sausage hotdog seemed like a good idea, after a hard morning's ume viewing.

The Japanese learned both sausage and beer from the Germans, and I suppose they learned takeaway and hotdogs from the Americans. Only problem is that takeaway doesn't really work in Japan because people don't eat in public, at least not standing up - apart from ice creams perhaps, or in places where there are lots of food stalls an most people are eating. Luckily the Japanese also think food is just as good cold as hot, which gives them time to go somewhere discreet. Not so us: we ate our funny looking hotdogs outside a bijou art gallery selling paintings for prices with several too many zeros. Oh dear, another faux pas...

Well the Germans have (had) takeaway sausage stalls for centuries too, so they may have got it from them as well.
