Potential forJapan food shortages--hording may begin soon

Jump to last reply

I'm concerned that there will be a shortage of decent food in Japan this fall. With the number of fodorites who have thus far indicated their intentions of visiting this island country in Oct-Dec, 2013 there might well prove to be shortages.

My understanding is that KimJapan has already started to lay in provisions and is experimenting with ways to preserve high quality fish products.

DonTopaz is taking reservations for use of his "bathrobe"...

Cheryl has already contacted Kodak to reserve sufficient film...

Kathie has ordered two extra copies of Dawn Rooney's Japan, with its best of tokyo restaurant listing and which japanese temples have food pantries.

HT is asking Congress to approve shipments of grain to Japan to create his favorite beverage..

Hanuman has sent Gaggan to Japan this week to start freeze drying items for us.

Most flights from Japan to Thailand are fully booked already for the next two years. I think aeroflot has a few seats left with connections thru Moscow (don't forget your tool kit).

if you can get tong on the horn she will arrange her special Japan food tour, but chances are all the fish and veggies will be quick dried and in short supply.

And filmwill is concerned about 2 nights in a glitzy guesthouse---ain't he from LA where glitz is the rule and money is no object?

ENJOY JAPAN...
