Japanese Soba set: buckwheat noodles sprinkled with seaweed, accompanied by dipping sauce, some tsukemono (pickled vegetables), and boiled soy beans (edamame)

Chopped Bonito sushi: this kind of sushi is called chirashi, or scattered sushi, with the raw fish loosely strewn on a bed of rice, sprinkled with chopped green onions, ginger, cooked egg and slivered leeks, white part only

Japanese Yakisoba: stir fried noodles that are slightly tangy, topped with shredded pickled ginger

Teriyaki Beef Sticks

Japanese Takoyaki: chunks of octopus baked in dough balls and drizzled with a tangy sauce

Broiled Octopus Legs

Japanese Flower Sushi: the seasoned rice lends color to the individual pieces and they all come together to form a flower
