Traditional Japanese Breakfast

Japanese Breakfast
Japanese Breakfast pictures (6 of 6)

When I was in Japan last week, I was very lucky to try out traditional Japanese breakfast at the hotel I stayed at. Needless to say, it was a new culinary experience to me–to be served with such beautiful and delicious small dishes to start off my busy day.

Traditional Japanese breakfast is a substantial meal and usually consists of a bowl of hot, freshly boiled rice, miso soup, toasted seaweed sheets (nori), pickled vegetables, a grilled/broiled fish dish, a simmered dish, a vegetables/tofu dish, and/or Japanese omelette roll (tamagoyaki). The combinations might vary, but you get the basic idea…

Even though I had been to Tokyo a few times, I’ve learned to really appreciate the art of Japanese cooking this past trip. (Food blogging does help a lot in this sense.) The meticulous attention and details that Japanese chefs/cooks display in their culinary aesthetics and creations have opened up my eyes, so much so that I resolve to go back to Japan soon to learn more about Japanese cuisine. And now, I completely understand the culinary world’s obsession with Japanese food. As a foodie, how can you not be?

    Thank you for this post! I thought lately that I’d like to sometimes have a traditional Japanese breakfast for a change ;) (and because I love Japanese food)

    I did a tour in Japan where we were given the option of a Western or Japanese style breakfast at each hotel that we stayed in. I went for the Japanese style every time and I enjoyed them all. I liked that there were little portions of a lot of different things so that I could try a nice variety of them.

    When I went to Toyko in Feb, we were on a budget so didn’t have a chance to eat such a luxurious breakfast hehe… looking at your photos really make me so hungry for Japanese food, how I wish to go back to Tokyo soon!

    How do you manage to take such beautiful photos in a restaurant? I always find it difficult — imperfect lighting, most of the time. I remember my first encounter with Japanese breakfast — a small fish served on its own mini hibachi, along with other beautiful small foods and vegetables — nothing like the bowl of cereal I eat for breakfast at home!

    I like to have Japanese food but most of the time is during lunch or dinner. I never try Japanese breakfast before. Looks nice to me. I hope I can go Japan one day.

    Nice! I can’t wait for my turn to try Japanese breakfast! Thanks for sharing! :)

  12. Marc @ NoRecipes says:

    Looks delicious. If you enjoyed this, you should try staying at a Ryokan (japanese bed and breakfast) next time. They usually provide very elaborate multi-course breakfasts.

    Great photos. Had lots of years working for a Japanese company and being put up in matchbox sized rooms which wasn’t fun but always enjoyed the food and culture. I was in Singapore last trip and had a “Japanese” breakfast in my hotel, which I blogged about http://is.gd/4ldU. Sure you can enjoy the South-East Asian take on the meal and the bad day that followed. Glad you had a great trip.

  14. Pepsi says:

    The photos are so beautiful! Make me feel so unsatisfied, cos I only have breads for my breakfast.

    Really need to go to Japan one day!
