About the Book
One November, two friends left their families at home and set out on an epic food adventure that found them ogling robots, eating just-dispatched eel, drinking whiskey chilled with hand-carved ice balls, consuming fish sperm on purpose, and getting kicked out of public baths. Not One Shrine is a bite-sized collection of Tokyo food adventures by two Seattle food writers.

Join us for a talk with Becky Selengut and Matthew Amster-Burton about the book and their most recent trip to the Kansai region in Japan.
