What do Japanese people traditionally eat for breakfast in Japan?
Many Japanese these days eat a more western breakfast with eggs, toast, and coffee. However, if you’re at Japanese inn or hospital or something you may get something more traditional, like this.
So what’s in this photo:
- White rice
- Natto (a dish of fermented soybeans, hated by many, loved by some)
- Kiriboshi Daikon (cut dried radish)
- Miso soup
- Pickled (shibazuke pickles)
- Saba (mackerel)
- Mugicha (barley tea)
- Gobou (burdock root) and Renkon (lotus root) with Mayonnaise
Cook it up! Might be fun!
Burn the natto! Toss it into a nearby volcano!
