It is one of the weirdest shows that I have ever watched, and some of the scenes are just bizarre (but also entertaining). The main character is Kantaro, a salesman who goes to try different dessert places throughout Tokyo during his trips (he is secretly a huge dessert fan). Kantaro is an interesting character because he acts very serious and uptight in front of his coworkers, but when he is enjoying his desserts he turns into a completely different person. You have to watch the show to see Kantaro’s reactions to eating the desserts, but they are all crazy and over the top.
One thing I really enjoyed about Kantaro The Sweet Tooth Salaryman is that all of the dessert places are actual dessert shops within Tokyo. While not all of the desserts will be things you want to try, it is good to know the places are real so that you can actually go to them in Tokyo. For a full list of the locations from the show, you should visit this blog article.
Some of the places that Kantaro visits specialize in dishes like kakigori (Japanese shaved ice), fruit parfait and doriyaki, ohagi, mont blanc, etc. While the show does have an overarching storyline, you do not really have to watch the shows in order. If you do not want to watch the entire thing, you can always choose to watch the episodes with the best looking desserts!
This is a blog for myself (and hopefully others) to keep track of all of the places, restaurants, books, movies, etc. that I do not want to forget. I am a college student who has lived in the US, Asia, and Europe for extended periods of time; I am very lucky to have had these experiences, and I want to share my recommendations with people interested in any of these locations.
NONE of these posts are advertisements. I do not have any discount codes or promotions for anything I write about; however, this should be considered a positive because it means that everything I write about reflects my true feelings. In order to keep this blog positive, my posts will only be recommendations for the things I enjoy the most in life. The topics will vary between whatever subjects I am interested in at a certain time, and I will have 1-2 new posts per day.
I wish I could have started this project earlier while some of my memories were fresher in my mind, but it is better late than never. I hope that other people will have the chance to visit or experience things that I write about, and I hope that people will have a similar taste in life to myself!
