Breakfast in Japan

A typical Japanese breakfast consists of miso soup and rice.   You can add furikaki (a mix of sesame, seaweed and sometimes dried fish) to the rice to make it a bit more interesting. Of course you can also have extra seaweed strips (nori) which can be mixed into the rice.  I chose the omelette which is made by cooking beaten egg in a rectangular pan in very thin layers which are then rolled into a sort of cake. Grilled salmon, 'skimono' which I call pickle of the day (here it's pickled eggplant), pickled cabbage and grated carrot and radish finished off with a couple of salted plums. Yum.  If this does not excite, most hotels also do Western dishes as well....
