Tokyo Olympics on Toluna #1 - Win 2,000 points
Closed

Traveling to Japan to spectate at the Olympics is not an option, so we thought we'd bring a bit of Japanese culture to Toluna!

Japan is renowned for their cuisine. Whilst sushi and ramen have been exported around the world, there are many foods that can only be found in Japan, or specific regions of the country. Japan is made up of 47 prefectures and each has a specialty dish.

One such example is monjayaki - one of Tokyo's most famous dishes. This is a savory pancake in which various ingredients such as squid, pork and cabbage, are cooked with a batter on an iron plate or grill. Other regions of Japan have their own variation of savory pancakes (commonly known as okonomiyaki), but monjayaki has a slightly different consistency in addition to being cooked and eaten differently - it must be eaten hot off the grill with a small spatula-like utensil (known as a "hera").

If we were in Tokyo for the Olympics, we would definitely be trying one of the many monjayaki restaurants in the city!

What other Japanese dishes do you enjoy, or would like to try? If you could be in Tokyo for the Olympics, what other places would you visit apart from the sporting events? Leave a comment below and we give 2,000 points to 5 of our favourite comments!

I don’t know much when it comes to Japanese foods, sushi which is something I feel is close to that, is deffs a favourite.

I enjoy Tempura and I would like to try Oden filled with delicious ingredients, a wondrous culinary adventure. Visiting and exploring the Tokyo Skytree would be amazing, such architectural creativity to inspire and indulge my passion/love for photography and design.

If I’m in Tokyo right now, I would love to go to OKINAWA, also known as the “Hawaii of Japan” which is the fifth largest island in the country. I will go there not only to see the place but also to visit my relatives. I’m sure that it is going to be the best holiday ever because everything will be a first time experience. My aunt will be my host and a tour guide and she will definitely show me the magnificent island famous for star-gazing, diving etc.. and I will try for the first time the unique cuisine in Okinawa and some famous Japanese food which I don’t know anything about aside from “sushi”. Okinawa is also where “karate” comes from and I would like to know more about that sport.
