We begin with an international blog based in New York City. Written and maintained by artist, Johnny Strategy, Spoon Tamago covers the latest happenings in Japanese art and design. It’s a huge blog which does a pretty good job of capturing the zeitgeist of Japanese culture. The strong emphasis on aesthetics includes plenty of posts on cuisine, with subjects including the creation of laser-cut seaweed as well as the art of Makizushi. Visitors will also find numerous wacky posts on the site – the article about sushi suitcase covers is one that stands out and provides a rather odd reminder of the versatility of Japanese cuisine!
