From the traditional dishes served at rural hot-spring ryokan inns, to Buddhist temple tea ceremonies, to the restaurant-filled high-rise madness of Tokyo, Japan expresses itself through its food. This guide takes you on a journey through all of Japan's culinary life. We go beyond the familiar sake and sushi, covering the essentials dashi (stock), bento boxes and soba noodles, and the exotic fermented soy beans, matsutake mushrooms, and fish that still wriggle as they slide down your throat, Itadakimasho! Let’s eat!
