Interesting Facts About Modern Japanese Food Culture
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

During the last few years, you are certainly familiar with some Japanese foods, such as tempura, ramen, sushi, yakiniku, and many more. They are served in Japanese restaurants in many countries in the world, including ramen Indonesia restaurants. You know, Japanese food culture has been through a long history, and it evolves since the coming of wet rice cultivation from Asian countries. Since then, Japan has a rice-centered food culture.

The introduction of wet rice cultivation is also responsible for the introduction of high-carbohydrate foods from Japan, including noodles. However, since Japan reopened to the west countries and cultures, the Japanese food culture begins to have varied food culture. Some foreign dishes came to Japan and began to adapt to the Japanese tongue. Later, some non-Japanese native cuisines are even more popular as Japanese foods.

Fact 1: Japan has seen significant changes in eating habits

Even though most families in Japan still enjoy home cooked foods for dinner, significant changes in eating habit have been there during the last few decades. Home-cooked dishes have been replaced by restaurant-served foods. More people enjoy dining out. Instances are sushi, bento (box lunches), Japanese noodle-based foods, such soba, udon, and ramen, and even pizza.

Furthermore, instant foods are easier to find in supermarkets. They offer prepared foods, which need no time to serve at home. Examples are sushi, tempura, instant ramen, and even fried chicken. They are increasingly popular due to practicality and cheap prices.

Fact 2: Japan is also known for non-Japanese specific foods

History is responsible for the coming of foreign foods to Japan. For instance, migration from China had brought ramen to Japan. In the modern day, ramen (which actually originates from China) is more popular as a Japanese noodle soup. The same case applies for Yakiniku, which is actually a Korean food. Yakiniku is actually based on Korean barbeque, but since they have been in Japan for many years, they are now associated with Japanese food culture. In fact, there are some differences between Japanese and Chinese ramen and between Japanese and Korean yakiniku.

Fact 3: Japanese restaurants mostly specialize in a single menu

Restaurants in Japan generally choose to serve only a single type of food. For instance, a tempura restaurant only serves tempura and side dishes, no other main dishes such as noodles. However, when visiting Japanese restaurants abroad, such as ramen Indonesia restaurants, you will be served with different types of Japanese foods. It is common to find a Japanese restaurant abroad that serves ramen, sushi, tempura, and many other foods.

Japanese food culture is now faced with the changes. The Japanese people are now forced to enjoy and maintain the old culture and at the same time welcome the new.
