Traditional Dishes of Japan

Edible Culture

You may have noticed from the last couple of posts, but I am not feeling well so I am not doing intensive writing. Rather, I’m trying to point people to other good content on the Web.

Why is this, you might ask? Well, let me give you one little piece of Japanese culture: cluttered web design. Kanji encourage Japanese people to use every millimeter of visual space. It doesn’t work as well as it ought to when translated into English. So, pointing to something specific can perform something of a public service.

In this case, try this specific link to Traditional Dishes of Japan, hosted by the English language version Japan National Tourism Organization web page. It’s a public resource, so why be shy?
