honor box + winner

IMG_0527 I noticed this honor box while walking the other week.

In the past, when we lived in Takatsuki, there was an honor box near the housing that we lived in and it sold veggies and cut flowers.

When I noticed this particular box/stand, it had some daikon (long white radish) for sale, unfortunately, whenever I go walking, I usually don't carry any money with me.

I think the next time I go walking in this direction, I'll bring some coins, just in case they have some nice looking veggies.

The sign says that everything is 100 yen (about US$1) that is a bargain.

Now, onto the winner of the giveaway...

I want to thank everyone who entered, I loved reading your comments and hope that you all accomplish what you set out to do in 2011.

The winner of the giveaway is Linny!

She used to live in Japan and if I remember correctly, she emailed me once for info on a Kobe steak place that also served vegetarian fare (she's vegetarian but her significant other is not)...I hope this was how we "met"...

Thanks for entering everyone!

I used to love buying from those honor boxes in little out-of-the-way places in Japan. Onions, negi, daikon, etc. I don't think that would work in the West.

yeah Abigail, I don't think it would work in the West.

Take care everyone.

We have a lot of these honor boxes where I live in Gifu, Japan. They are great because they have a lot of good veggies and are really cheap. You just need to have a few spare coins handy.

K and S said...

will definitely have to carry some coins J-A :)

Take care.

I used to love those honor boxes too, and we have them a lot in the rural areas here as well. I love diakon, especially a lovely fresh diakon salad in summer.

Neat! I don't think an honor box will work very well around hawaii. What do you think?

Deb in Hawaii said...

Fun--I almost never see honor boxes anymore except once in a while on the neighbor islands. ;-)

K and S said...

ooh daikon salad is very nice in summer Melanie :)

maybe the outer islands Rick but not Oahu.

yeah I don't think it would work on Oahu Deb in Hawaii.

Take care everyone.
