SANSAI (Mountain Vegetables) 山菜

There are over 200 varieties of sansai, the mountain vegetables that spring forth from the ground in the spring. When sansai arrive at the market, you can overhear customers talk about the arrival of spring. It is served many ways including ohitashi (simmered), sunomono (vinegared), tempura, aemono (dressed with a sauce), and kinpira (julienned and stir-fried). Over a bowl of soba noodles the bitterness of the sansai is a nice contrast to the earthy buckwheat noodles. There is something special about the bitter vegetables when served up in tempura.

Beer Museum Yebisu / Japanese Food

Yebisu Garden Place was originally the site of Sapporo's Tokyo brewery, so it is only fitting that they would put their Beer Museum here.
Not only is admission free, but the Tasting Lounge at the end of the course is a bargain for beer lovers. Getting there, however, requires that you first go through the museum, which can take anywhere between 10 minutes and an hour (depending on how eager you are for a beer).

Meatrea Meat Theme Park, Minami-Osawa (Vol. 2)

Kiyomaru (Ehime Prefecture)- tonkatsu pork cutlet

Tonkatsu parfait is perhaps their most famous dish (the main shop's website URL refers to it), but Kiyomaru sells other "abnormal tonkatsu" items like pork cutlet pockets stuffed with fried rice, cheese and other ingredients. The parfait (Y580) comes in a huge ice-cream cone that holds a good-sized dollop of green-tea ice cream and bits of kiwi, pineapple, cherries, mikan and apple, with whipped cream and two strips of tasty deep-fried pork.

Meatrea Meat Theme Park, Minami-Osawa

When we first learned of Meatrea, billed as Japan's first meat theme park, we were intrigued. Not just a collection of meat restaurants, they also boast a Meat Musuem (or "Museo de Carne" as they mysteriously call it) with an educational component.
And when we heard out about their tonkatsu parfait, a dessert featuring ice cream and pork, we knew we'd have to hop on the train to inspect the place for ourselves.

List of Japanese dishes / Noodle dishes / Japanese Food & Cooking

A noodle is a type of food with a thin and elongated shape made from unleavened dough that is cooked in a boiling liquid.
Depending upon the type, noodles may be dried or refrigerated before cooking. The word derives from the German Nudel (noodle) and may be related to the Latin word nodus (knot).
Noodles often take the place of rice in a meal. However, the Japanese appetite for rice is so strong that many restaurants even serve noodles-rice combination sets.

Many mushrooms that are originally from the Far East are not only available dried and canned but can also be found fresh in produce markets the world over.
Perhaps the best known of these - and certainly the most available - is the Japanese brown mushroom or shiitake (Cortinellus shiitake).
Once grown only in Japan by introducing spores to a local type of oak tree, this mushroom is now cultivated in the United States - on artificial logs.
