Most people already know about sushi.
Sushi is a mixture of rice flavored with vinegar and salt, fish and vegetables. It’s call Chirashisushi (チラシ寿司）
And the rice mixed with vinegar and fish and various ingredients are put on top. It’s call Nigiri-sushi (握り寿司）Actually, If you want to put it on, you can put anything on it, so there are many types.
The most popular ingredients in Japan are tuna and salmon. However, There are some strange types of sushi, including sushi with salmon eggs, sushi with raw fish testes, and sushi with liver. Even Japanese people hesitate to eat this kind of ingredient, but if you want to try it, please try it.
There are many sushi restaurants in Japan.
Broadly speaking, there is a sushi that costs 100 yen ($ 1) all plates or depending on the each type.
I think it’s still unfamiliar food. If you like in the United States, it is a BBQ shop. Yakiniku is a standard for Japanese young people when they go to eat together. If you haven’t been there yet, I’d love to visit you.
Japanese yakiniku is original and has already become synonymous with Japanese food. You can order various kinds of meat and parts, and in Japan, you also eat internal organs.
After all, We eat Japanese yakiniku with Japanese yakiniku sauce (焼肉のたれ）
Sauces made with various seasonings can be enjoyed no matter how many times you go. Overseas tourists often buy Japanese yakiniku sauce at supermarkets and return home.
All you can eat for a fixed amount.
Tempura is a traditional Japanese dish where seafood and vegetable ingredients are wrapped in a batter mixed with flour and then grated with oil.
Its history is long, dating back to 1669. Because of such a long history, the tempura of today is exquisite after a long history.
In Japan, there are authentic tempura shops and restaurants that make and keep warm like a dining room, and the taste is completely different.
Here are some delicious tempura shops in Japan.
Curry is a food that is eaten in many Asian countries, so many people know it. And a soup that seasons ingredients using various kinds of spices. Since different countries use different types of spices, It is now quite different from country to country.
Curry was not originally Japanese food, it was introduced to Britain from India and from Britain to Japan around 1800.
But Japanese curry has evolved independently and has become a favorite food in Japan. After all, It is a magical dish that has a rich taste and can be eaten delicious every day.
Curry is a national food in Japan. You can enjoy various tastes by putting various ingredients.
Nobody complains about curry as the favorite food of Japanese children.
Rather, I have never seen anyone who hates curry in Japan.
There are many delicious curries in Japan.
Isn’t it the ramen shop you see most in Japan?
There are many ramen shops in Japan.
Many Japanese people love ramen, and they only eat it every day.
Originally, ramen is a Chinese food, but like curry, it evolved independently in Japan to become Japanese ramen.
Surprisingly, there are 30,000 stores nationwide! That’s it, so there are many famous and delicious ramen shops.
There are many types of soups, including miso, seafood, tonkotsu, soy sauce, etc. that contain famous products in each region.
Unique ramen, such as “Jiro” and “family”, has become a popular spot now. It is a food that will continue to evolve in Japan. That’s why I love Japanese, so there is no odd number of cup ramen. (Instant ramen) You can bring it home.
The taste is not inferior to eating at the shop, so many people will be pleased to bring home this kind of ramen as a souvenir?
You may not know the difference between sushi and sashimi. Unlike sushi, sushi is not eaten with rice, but only with ingredients.
You can enjoy the original taste of fish rather than sushi, and it is popular with foodies.
Sashimi has many shops in the city near the sea. There, you can eat sashimi on a rice bowl, served as a seafood bowl. It is very delicious and very popular with Japanese.
Even if you do not go to the area near the sea, you can eat delicious sashimi and seafood bowl in Japan if you go to a bar called izakaya.
Izakaya is similar to a bar. You can eat traditional Japanese food while drinking. (It’s not necessary to drink alcohol.) Many people go there for food. You can order soft drink too.
However, there are too many izakaya in Japan and many people don’t know where to go. Therefore, I will introduce izakaya chains around the country.
7. Deep Fried Chicken
It is a world famous food like fried chicken in the United States. It’s such food that everyone likes around the world. Speaking of overseas fried chicken, many people think of meat attached to bones. Japanese deep fried chicken is basically boneless and round.
There are various flavors, and the most popular ones are Japanese seasoning soy sauce and salty. In addition, there is also a traditional seasoned fried chicken. If you enjoy Japanese food, you can’t remove the fried chicken.
It is a familiar food in Japan so that it is always in the top 3 favorite food ranking among Japanese children.
Gyoza is a food originally introduced in China, made by mixing ground meat and vegetables, wrapping in flour skin, and baked.
It is said that boiled food is the mainstream in China, and it came to bake after coming to Japan.
Gyoza is one of the most popular foods in Japan, and you won’t get tired of it many times.
Most gyoza can be eaten at izakayas and Chinese restaurants in Japan. Even if you say a Chinese restaurant, many Japanese-owned restaurants are original Japanese.
And there are some famous chain stores in Japan.

Tonkatsu is made by pork breaded and fried. Taste is so juicy and delicious that the rice never stops. And the tonkatsu basically has no taste and is eaten with sauce.
This sauce is different depending on the shop, so delicious shops have different sauces.
If you eat once, you will want to eat again.
The famous place for tonkatsu in Japan is Miso Katsu (矢場とん） in Nagoya, Aichi Prefecture. The tonkatsu here is attached to a secret miso, and if you go to Nagoya, it is a classic specialty.
Soba noodles are made with soba noodles and soup. Japanese traditional food.
There are two types of eating roughly divided into soba.
The warm soup contains buckwheat noodles and is served with tempura. It is recommended to warm your body during the cold season.
Speaking of soba, I think many people imagine this.
There are soba noodles washed with cold water on a plate called colander and eat it with soup. It is exquisite to eat on a hot summer day.
And it is said that soba has a beautiful skin effect and is healthy, and when you eat it, you will feel better from inside your body.
And it comes out when you go to a proper soba shop.
It is sobayu. (蕎麦湯）I think many foreigners do not know this.
In Japan, you drink the hot water used when boiling soba. It has a slightly buckwheat flavor
In most cases, you will not be able to come out unless you go to a specialty soba shop that makes soba from scratch.
It may be a little thin for beginners, but if you taste it and drink it, you can enjoy the taste of the ingredients.
