Japanese dish

  Japanese cuisine has a big list of dishes and regional specialities; this is because Japanese people have taken a little bit from all over the world getting the influence of Asian, European and Americas cuisines.

  Nowadays, the typical dishes in the Japanese cuisine are based on rice and/or noodles in a soup; okazu using fish, meat, vegetables and tofu; sauces such as dashi, miso and soy.

  Mostly, because Japan is an island nation, their typical ingredient is seafood, but there is also Buddhism dishes so there are vegetarian people.
