Nippon-NOLA challenge: week 3
October 24, 2012
Congrats to Masashi for winning the second round of the Nippon-Nola Challenge. The Caucasian man who grew up in a Japanese household and played for a New Orleans professional sports team is former Saints linebacker Scott Fujita. Masashi gets $20 to use in our online store.
Also, Mark Folse, a contributor to Where We Know: New Orleans as Home
, recently ran into Lafcadio Hearn's great-grandson, Bon Koizumi, at the Yakumo Japanese Garden in New Orleans! He writes about it on his blog
. Very cool. Sounds like Mark is pretty handy at haiku too. Feel like sharing one with us, Mark?
Our third question in the challenge:
What famous New Orleans cafe has a branch in Tokyo? Plus, we'll throw in an extra $20 if you can tell us what extra menu item the Tokyo version of the cafe has.
