The Many Wonders Of Japanese Cuisine

East Asia’s Land of the Rising Sun is not just known for its rich history and vibrant culture. It’s also known for its people, who serve as the foundation of a history like never before; and its customs, which serves as the foundation of a culture like no other.

But if you think Japan’s cuisine is only limited to sushi and tempura, think again.

Below are some of the many wonders of Japanese cuisine:


Japan’s cookies are the perfect epitomes of both traditional baking and modern baking.

Traditionally, there’s Yoku Moku Japanese by baker Noriichi Fujinawa – a cookie that was inspired from the aftermath of World War II back in 1945 and the kind of joy Fujinawa saw in people as he distributed cookies, as well as the small town of Jokkmook in Northern Sweden and the kind of warmth Fujinawa experienced from people as he purchased ingredients.

Yoku Moku cookies are described to be simple, yet elegant – individually wrapped and put in a tin box with a seasonal design. There are 5 kinds of cookies in it: Cigar, Pleine Lune, Bateau de Macadamia, Billetau Chocolateau Lait, Billet aux Amandes Chocolate, and two more kinds that vary per season – all of which are perfectly crisp and amazingly tasteful.

And oh, let’s not forget about the drinkable cookies – a modern take on cookies and milk, which can either be served hot or cold.


Believe it or not, Japan’s fishes are also the perfect epitomes of both traditional cooking and modern cooking. Traditionally, there’s broiled yellowtail that is marinated in sweet soy sauce and fried blowfish that is served with salt and lemon. Modernly, there’s steamed fish that comes with lotus root or plain rice and in salt flavor or soy flavor.

Other fishes that can used – especially for grilling with just a bit of salt – steaming, include salmon, mackerel, snapper, and fresh water fish.

Why You Should Go Fishing


Let’s face it.

Most of us think fishing can only be done by professionals, as well as older people. But you know what? Fishing can actually be done by everyone, as well as little kids. It can also be done in ways like holding a contest to see who caught the biggest fish, as well as making the one who caught the smallest fish grill dinner – both of which are splendid ways to engage your loved ones more to go fishing with you.

That being said, here are more reasons why you should go fishing:

It keeps your body conditioned enough.

As you cast your rod over the water, your arm muscles will be conditioned – just enough to have the strength to pull the rod whenever you catch a fish. As you pull the rod whenever you catch a fish, your leg muscles will also be conditioned – just enough to take control of the situation without getting the fish back into the water or yourself getting thrown into the water.

It keeps your mind active enough.

Just like anything you do that involve strategy, fishing keeps your mind active enough – to be more alert whenever a fish is coming onto your bait, to be more mindful about the dangers of casting the rod over the water too far, and to be more careful as you pull the rod whenever you catch a fish.

BONUS: You get to spend more time with your loved ones.

Fishing is not just a great way to have a tasty dinner with your loved ones by either picnicking on the fishing site itself or going home to grill the fish you’ve caught with some of the world’s best patio bistro grill parts. It’s also a great way to spend more time with them, conversing with each other or even doing other fun activities as you wait for the fish to be caught.
