Kotaku EastEast is your slice of Asian internet culture, bringing you the latest talking points from Japan, Korea, China and beyond. Tune in every morning from 4am to 8am.  

No, you are not reading Hideo Kojima's Twitter (though, I think it's silly that guy gets heat for posting pics of his food—he should be able to post whatever he wants!)

Today I had lunch at my desk. The morning was spent doing an interview for a very cool story I'll be running tomorrow.

It might not look very filling, but I was stuffed after eating this. Next to the glass of tea is package of natto (fermented beans). Natto is quite smelly, but I really like it.

Next to that is ajitsuke nori or "flavored nori". It's very common in Western Japan, where I live.

Today was busy. Hopefully tomorrow, I'll be able to eat at my table—and not my desk.
