In general, said is not considered a meal by itself in Japan. When you go to a wester style restaurant, you will receive a salad in small bowl in Japan. So if you are traveling to Japan and hoping to get a big bowl of salad like you see above, you will not find it.
Of cause you can always go to a buffet restaurant and get as must salad as you wish ... but you are in Japan and you are at buffet, you have much more interesting choices for your meal than a salad.
Since 1996, Japanese-Online has been provided as a free service from PSPINC with the purpose of providing resources to individuals interested in learning about the Japanese Language and culture.
Japanese-Online has content suited to varying levels of study, including lessons for beginners as well as lessons tailored for those who need grammar and writing resources. Lessons are best suited to those who have basic understanding of hiragana and katakana alphabets before moving on to the more advanced grammar and particle lessons. Grammar lessons focus on learning about writing and creating more complex sentences and most lessons will not use romaji (Japanese sounds written with roman letters). Kanji is used in the lessons with hiragana and English translations provided.
