TOKYO -- President Obama arrived here Wednesday to begin an eight-day tour of Asian allies designed to assure leaders that they have a strong U.S. backup at a time of rising tensions in the region. Obama went directly to his task after landing in Tokyo, heading straight into a private dinner with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe at the narrow wooden counter of a popular sushi restaurant in the busy Ginza shopping district. The leaders agreed in advance to put off their formal welcome ceremony and royal reception until after they had met one-on-one in a friendly, more casual setting.

For a while there, it seemed as if every new restaurant that was opening served sushi. In any case, here are a few unlikely spots where you can enjoy a tuna roll. Bridge Veal Milanese, pumpkin ravioli and sushi? It seems a farfetched grouping. Then again, the sister restaurant to this glam, not quite year-old Italian is Koi across the street, the trendy Japanese eatery.

It has never been easier to eat high-end sushi than it is now in Los Angeles - to surrender two hours and half a month's rent to the choreographed roll of the waves. You can experience the masculine crispness of Mori or the postmodern wackiness of Wa; the gentle experimentation of Kiriko or the discofied modernism of Nobu Malibu; the gold leaf and truffle oil of Go's Mart or the intellectual approach of Kiyokawa. The idea of purist edomae sushi, or at least its rigor, is well-established here.

Kimchi kimbap is a uniquely Korean style of sushi. " Kim" means seaweed, "pap" means rice and kimchi is a spicy pickle often made with nappa cabbage. So it's easy to figure that kimchi kimbap is seaweed-wrapped sushi with cabbage kimchi in the center. Other components are cucumber, carrot, egg pancake and sesame leaf, which has an enchanting, almost jasmine-like fragrance. J.Y.

CANNES, France -- A trip to Le Marche, the film market at Cannes, is always a tonic experience. The energy created by the unabashed desire to make large sums of money is a refreshing change of pace after the more rarefied experiences of other parts of the festival. Le Marche is where you can see hijab-wearing women working for an Iranian production company next to a booth where Japanese horror producers are selling “Cult” (“from the producers of 'Ring' and 'The Grudge'”).

Lynn Schuette, depending on your point of view, is a world-class snake oil huckster or an impresario of rare talent and vision. Either way she has accomplished the apparently impossible: developing an audience in San Diego for some of the most avant-garde performers in the nation.

Congratulations to Ken Levine for a great feedback letter that demonstrated just how mundane, boring really, "My Favorite Weekend" has become [Sept. 28]. I would really like to see his spin on Thursday's report by Leslie Brenner on Sushi Dokoro Ki Ra La ["It's a Big Bite of Life," Sept. 28]. It is very comforting to us ordinary folk that for only $95 and up we can dine on raw monkfish liver, tuna belly, sea urchin, really fresh seaweed and cooked scallop offal. Ancient Romans had a thing for hummingbird tongue to stimulate jaded tastes.

For the rest of us, here's a selection of wines that work well with sushi. PHOTOS: 10 wines to drink with sushi To find where to buy them, search www.winesearcher.com .

For decades, Toshiaki Toyoshima has followed the same ritual each morning at his downtown restaurant: He ties on his indigo happi - a short-sleeved Japanese chef's jacket - and dons a white cap before he begins cutting fish for nearly 500 customers who dine at Sushi Gen daily. But in January, Toyoshima's tradition-bound routine was upset. He had to add a step: A new law now forces him to snap on a pair of thin vinyl gloves before he can touch the fish. His gloved hands seem to move no less deftly as he stands behind mounds of tuna fillets glistening on his counter and slices the raw fish with a long knife.

It was getting late, that point in the night at Sushi Roku when the bussers are discreetly cleaning around you and servers are stapling receipts to sales reports. My date and I were taking our last sips of sake and final bites of green tea mochi. In front of us, on the other side of the sushi bar's glass partition, two raw tuna slabs lay side by side: one yellowtail and one yellowfin. He pointed at them. "Those tunas are like us: I am like the red and you are like the white, because we are so different," he said.

In the last two or three years, more and more Sushi Roku diners have asked for gluten-free food, so the restaurant company decided to develop a menu for people avoiding wheat, barley and rye. Customers at sushi restaurants have always had the option to eat sushi or sashimi, as long as they avoided soy sauce, which often contains wheat. But soy sauce isn't just in a bottle on tables; it's often an ingredient in other sauces. When a diner asks about gluten, it can take 10 or 15 minutes for a waiter to go through a menu and discuss alterations that would suit the diner, says Tom Cardenas, vice president of operations.

NOTE: This is a blog about two guys attempting to lose weight over a six-week period.  They kicked off their weight loss "strategies" on Jan. 10 . My buddy Chris has been a Lakers season ticket holder for about 10 years. Which means for roughly a decade we would meet outside Staples Center, get through the metal detector, grab some beers and dogs and nachos, and watch some high quality hoop. Because they are Chris' tickets, I usually pay for the food and beverages.

Squid sprints brought downtown Tokyo to a virtual halt Friday. Gathered around a 13-foot-long, 24-inch-deep tank of water at the entrance to a mall in the Ginza shopping district, hundreds of office workers cheered on their favorite squids in the bizarre race. The squids, racing in six lanes, were prodded into motion with sticks. The event was staged as a promotion by a northern tourism association.

At a spot on Sunset Boulevard and Vine Street in Hollywood, visitors scoop up sushi, taste frozen yogurt and order lattes. But this isn't a restaurant or even a fancy supermarket. It's that Main Street staple: Walgreens. "It's like an amusement park," gushed West Hollywood resident Brent Leonesio, 30, as he eyed the line of people waiting to pick up caffeinated drinks to go. "They've kind of made this into a destination. It's actually fun to come here. " Once mainstays for late-night snack runs and toilet paper emergencies, drugstores are shaking off their stale image and going upscale.
