Japan. A traditional Japanese breakfast is based on rice, seafood, and fermented foods, which do not differ substantially from dishes eaten
at other meals in Japanese cuisine. An exception is natto (a type of fermented soybeans), which is rarely eaten outside of breakfast.
A typical Japanese restaurant breakfast presentation would be miso soup, rice with nori or other garnishes, natto, grilled fish, raw egg , and a pickled vegetable. Western
breakfast foods may be eaten. However, the influence of Japanese travelers has
made the traditional breakfast a standard option on the menus of many upscale
hotels world-wide. It is common in Japanese households to include left-over
items from the last evening's dinner in the next day's breakfast. Typical
breakfast beverages are green tea (traditional) and coffee (modern).
