If you guys come to Japan, you must try some famous foods. What foods have you tried ever and what is your thought? Let's feel free to share it here.

Me, as a Japanese man, my favorite foods are Udon vs Soba. Normally I will eat Udon or Soba with drinking a little bit Sake , it is delicious

Hi Ittachi. Welcome to the forums. :)

I love Udon. I'm a fussy eater but noodle bars are a good option for me when travelling.

I had a lot of Onigiri while travelling around Japan. What a handy option for lunch. I also love Japanese curries, Yakitori, kaarage, udon, soba ... It might be easier to list the things I don't like haha

Something a bit different - we had a delicious Japanese spaghetti (aka wafu pasta) at this amazing izakaya near Mt Fuji. It's made me want to try some wafu pasta recipes of my own.

Yes, many Japanese foods is easy to taste and they are also fresh :)))

I loved our two months in Japan and even though I'm a very fussy eater, thoroughly enjoyed sampling the food and drink. On the drink side, we made supreme efforts to try as many sakes as possible, including some interesting aged ones, with the fancier junmai daiginjo and the less fancy namasake coming out as firm favourites. We got through a variety of shochu and also found a great bar for Japanese whiskey. And of course we tried the teas too.

For food, we did try the ramen, soba and udon. We enjoyed the experience of having our okonomiyaki made in front of us in Osaka. We tried the omurice, and gyoza and tonkatsu were mainstays for my fussy eating. We made numerous trips to yakiniku to grill our own meats, and very much enjoyed sampling the Kobe beef in Kobe.

I have not been to Japan, and I confess that I don't care for either sushi or sashimi. My sister has tried to educate me but I remain a heathen. I do not drink and have not sampled saki. I like tea and tempora and sukiyaki.

I liked all the noodle dishes but udon were my favourites. I also liked sashimi (especially salmon) and loved the Hida beef in Takayama - both served traditionally to cook yourself on mini griddles, and in a wonderful beef burger! To drink I liked Japanese whiskey and plum wine
