Sweet Potatoes

McDonald’s in Japan occasionally has special promotions where they sell food oddities. Once they sold really expensive burgers with top quality ingredients. (Well, top quality for everything but the meat.)

This time, Mark and I headed to McDonald’s for their Choco Fries, French fries covered in brown and white chocolate sauce.

There’s still time to turn back!

We were given plain fries and a packet of Double Choco Sauce. Mark poured the sauces over the fries and we tried it. It wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t good either. I think it would have been good if I were used to French fries being a sweet dish. I’m sure that if I tried the Choco Fries a couple more time, I would start to like it. But since I have enough sugar filled things in my diet, I’ll stay away from this one in the future.

Fries with ketchup have more than enough sugar for me.

How to get there:

You can enter Japan by plane or boat. Though, the number of boats going to Japan from other countries has gone down significantly.   Americans get 90-day visas to Japan at the port of entry. Check with your nearest Japanese embassy or consulate for visa information.







  • Be careful what over the counter drugs you bring into Japan.  Actifed, Sudafed, Vicks inhalers, and Codeine are prohibited.
  • InternationalATMs are really hard to find; more so if you aren’t in a big city. Many places in Japan do not use credit cards. Take cash and call your bank toaskwhatATMs or banks in Japan will work with your cash card.
    • ATMs have opening hours. Usually 9:00-18:00 (They have better work hours than most business men and women here.)
    • The Post Office bank seems to work with most cards.
  • You can get a Japan Railway, pass which saves you a lot of money on the trains, but you can only buy it before you get to Japan and you cannot be a resident of Japan. (I don’t have more information about it because I’ve only ever lived in Japan. I’ve never been a tourist.)


How to get there:





  • McDonald’s is a little more pricy in Japan, but so is everything else.


  • Most are open 24/7.
