Japanese cuisine: about sushi, rice and national sweets

Japanese cuisine is loved all over the world, and for good reason, because it is very diverse and healthy! In addition, despite its popularity, it is still considered exotic.

The main food product for the Japanese is rice, but often dishes are also prepared from seafood and fish. For example, the famous sushi is raw fish wrapped in a tube of rice and seaweed.

In addition to unsweetened dishes, rice is often part of traditional Japanese sweets called "wagashi". Here, flour is first obtained from rice, and then tortillas are prepared from it, stuffed with sweet red bean paste, melon paste and swollen dried fruit . The result is a Daifuku that belongs to the wagashi group of sweets. By the way, the latter are usually served with green tea in Japan, and they contain much less sugar than European desserts.
