Everyone knows Japan has great food. Beautiful food. Complex food. But let me be the one to tell you...Japan knows the Donut. These drawings are of some of the finest dough treats I ate while traveling in Japan during the month of April. Mister Donut, makes classic donuts that are not too greasy or too sweet. And they come in unusual shapes like this eye catching "beaded" dounut.

In tropical Naha on the island of Okinawa, vendors sell Okinawan donuts along the colorful International Street. I tried the banana, a cakey heavy donut ball that tasted like a awesome greasy banana bomb. Yeah!

  • Wow – amazing, beautiful drawings. I have yet to try the butt-bead donuts at Mr. Donuts. They keep coming out with new flavors every time I pass by though.

  • Yoko! Tasty right? Is that a coincidence? Its cosmic forces working to bring you a Grease Bomb!
