    How to narrow it down to just one thing? Having finally visited Kyushu a few weeks ago, I’d say it’s Hakata style ramen, I love the tonkotsu broth. But close seconds include tonkatsu and cabbage, horse shabu shabu and kyoryori feasts!

    I have tried Natto at my wife’s home in Japan. Not a huge fun but don’t mind the smell, which is a bit like coffee! Durham- UK

    I really wanted to love natto but the smell, omg the smell! I tried to get over it and eat it mixed with rice but the taste and texture just didn’t do it for me. I hate the stuff!

    Natto is ick! The texture is nightmarish!
