Eating Okonomiyaki on the beach in Bali would be a favorite.
What kind of Okonomiyaki have you had? Looks wonderful. I like the shrimp one they talk about on your link.
(Sorry about the typo in the last attempt at typing. Happy Hour you see.)

One of my favourite dream vacations would be a trip to NZ!!! I've always wanted to go there!

ellie:
LOL! No Brussels sprouts on the list ;)

Awww...Manitoulin is one of my favourite places too :) I hope to see you up here sometime! Now with the move to Nova Scotia, you're going to be even further away though!!!

Don Mills Diva:
:) Actually, I'd love to be anywhere hot right now! LOL!

Jeanna:
Oooooh! The shrimp okonomiyaki is my favourite. I've had other kinds too, but shrimp is by far my favourite. There's this really small mom and pops shop in the village I taught in when I was in Japan. I used to go there every week. They cook the okonomiyaki on a hot plate right in front of you. LOVE IT!!! The old woman who owned the place didn't speak a word of English, and my Japanese was horrible! Our communication exchanges were the funniest ever. I really miss Fumiko-san! She was a hard as nails type of lady, but after two years of me frequenting her little shop, she sort of softened up.

CK:
OMG!!! REALLY??? GAHHHHH! I am soooooooo jealous!!! That is my favourite time of the year in Japan. It is soooooooooo beautiful!!! Actually, anywhere you go during that time will be spectacular! The cherry blossoms are stunning!

They call it Ohanami and the cherry blossoms are called sakura. I think Kyoto is a great place to view cherry blossoms. There are several famous spots. I lived/worked in Hiroshima prefecture and again, TONS of beautiful spots. If you're going to be in Tokyo, Nagoya or Osaka, you'll have no problems finding beautiful spots. Here's a list of popular spots: http://www.japan-guide.com/e/e2011_where.html
