Low Salt Diet

Low Carb / Low Sodium Diet
Not very easy in Japan.
People in Japan are generally thin and fit compared to other western and industrial nations, especially compared to the USA. But if you are some kind of doest like

- Low Carb Diet
- Low Sodium Diet
- Gluten Free Diet
- Vegetarian Diet
- Kosher Diet
- Halal Diet

Thing get really complicated. Most meals (dining out) in Japan are very balanced but they do not make much changes. What I mean is that restaurants do not usually accept any dietary requests.

It is a brand of Japanese Sake.
It iOS one of the sake brands that is easier to find here in the US than in Japan.

うな重 EEL TAERIYAKI OVER RICE

Unajyu is one of the favorite meals in Japan.
To get good Unajyu, you need to spend 3 ~ 5,000 Yen in Japan.

Una = Unagi (EEL)
Jyu = Jyubako (BOX)

It comes in BOX ... If it comes in a bowl, it will be called UnaDon instead of UnaJyu.

Google Translate

Mickey Rooney played a buffoonish Japanese businessman in "Breakfast at Tiffany's"
Japan is an island nation in the Pacific Ocean with dense cities, imperial palaces, mountainous national parks and thousands of shrines and temples. Shinkansen bullet trains connect the main islands of Kyushu (with Okinawa's subtropical beaches), Honshu (home to Tokyo and Hiroshima’s atomic-bomb memorial) and Hokkaido (famous for skiing). Tokyo, the capital, is known for skyscrapers, shopping and pop culture.

After Google Translate

日本は太平洋の島国で、都市や宮殿、山岳国立公園、数千の神社や寺院があります。新幹線は、九州の主要島(沖縄の亜熱帯浜辺)、本州(東京と広島の原爆記念碑)、北海道(スキーで有名)を結んでいます。首都東京は、高層ビル、ショッピング、ポップカルチャーで知られています。

Google Translate has evolved quite a bit. It is now making sense ... But for commercial use, you should still consult with Japanese native speakers. If you need a translation help. We can recommend translators.

海鮮丼 (Kaisen Don)

No, it is not PoKe. PoKe is getting popular in the US, but this is Japanese style seafood bowl. You can get one in many places in Japan and the price ranges from 800 yen to 2,000yen. I think the one you are looking at is 1,200 yen in Ameyoko Tokyo.

Do you like Japanese sweets?
In Japan, (red) beans are cooked with sugar to make sweet paste.
So, when I came to the US and tasted salty beans, it was difficult to adopt.
Many of Japanese sweets are rice (mochi / rice cake) and sweet red means.
Do you like any of them?

Fall for appetite?

コーホーとカップケーキとシナモンロール
こんにちは!
Today, I want to talk about “食欲の秋 (shokuyoku-no-aki).” “食欲 (shoku-yoku)” means appetite, and “秋 (aki)” is fall. So the phrase literally means “Fall (is the season) for appetite.” In other words, fall is the best season to enjoy food!

Here is an example:
いっぱい食べすぎちゃった。でも食欲の秋だから…いいよね!
I ate too much, but fall is the best season to enjoy food… so it’s alright.

We have some other phrases using “〜の秋” besides 食欲の秋.
読書の秋 (dokusho-no-aki):fall is the best season for reading
スポーツの秋:fall is the best season for sports

Hope everyone enjoys the fall :)
