While the anime auteur may not be a household name in the way of Hayao Miyazaki or even Makoto Shinkai (the director of global anime hit "Your Name,") he should be. Hosoda, with his delicate animation style and intimate fantasy adventures, has a style unto himself, often injecting his own personal experiences into his fantastical stories. "The Boy and the Beast" might be a kickass action-fantasy movie about a boy who finds his way i...

Beat the summer doldrums with comforting eats in the San Fernando Valley

“Doldrums” — it’s a wonderful word, born as the sailor’s jargon for what’s technically known as the Intertropical Convergence Zone. That’s the zone near the Equator, where the northeast and southeast trade winds converge, canceling each other out — leaving a region with no wind, where sailing ships would become trapped in what’s also known as “the calms.” They were caught, unable to move, with their water running short, and their food running low. It often was a death sentence for the sailors of...

5 best restaurants for exotic sushi rolls in the San Fernando Valley

The first “exotic” sushi roll I encountered was the iconic California Roll — technically a makisushi containing cucumber, crab (real or otherwise) and avocado, sesame seeds and flying fish roe, often rolled inside out. It stands in contrast to the more traditional nigiri sushi — the lozenge of rice with a slice of fresh fish layered on top, held in place with a strip of seaweed. The California Roll first appeared on the burgeoning sushi scene back in the late 1970s. And it’s probably from Califo...

An elderly Tokyo bar owner and her enormous cat

There are numerous reasons to seek out old Tokyo bars run by equally old people. The often similarly ageing decor is one thing, as is the invariably relaxed and carefree vibe, but perhaps most of all it’s the wealth of stories one hears that makes them truly memorable. Tales from an incredibly long life lived on the city’s far western reaches for example, or the culinary adventures of a lovely fella who left home at 14 so he could train to be a French chef. All unique and genuinely enriching ele...

Many People In Japan Defy Stay-At-Home Appeals
