Japanese Salt
Salt is as essential as water in order to live. It is the most famous seasoning in the world. About ten years ago, one American explained that salt in Japan is sea salt whereas in the United States it is rock salt. I thought that all salt anywhere in the world was sea salt. When I researched about salt, I found out that 80% of people eat rock salt (including lake salt) and 20% of people eat sea salt. It is said that long ago the area where rock salt was collected was the sea. Rock salt and sea salt strictly are the same. In the past, making salt in Japan was more difficult than making it in other countries because land available for production was scarce and the weather was irregular. Currently, an ion exchange membrane, which is one millionth of a millimeter, is used in making sea salt. The membrane shuts out harmful substances (mercury and PCB) from seawater. For this reason, Japanese salt is considerably safe. Sea salt contains many minerals. Because Japanese food uses sea salt, you should use it together with soft water when you cook Japanese dishes.

Tonkatsu (Deep–Fried Breaded Pork Cutlets)
Tonkatsu is a very famous Japanese food. It seems that it was first made by a restaurant in Tokyo during the Meiji period (1868-1912). "Ton" means pork and "katsu" means cutlet. What is the difference between cutlet and tonkatsu. Cutlets are fried but tonkatsu are deep fried. Cutlets use fine breadcrumbs, but tonkatsu uses rather coarse bread crumbs (panko). The pork used in tonkatsu can be loins (rōsu-katsu) or fillets (hire-katsu). People who care about calories often choose pork fillets which have little fat. Tonkatsu is served with shredded cabbage as a garnish. Tonkatsu sauce (based on Worcestershire sauce and tomato) is poured over tonkatsu. Tonkatsu is widely eaten at home (homemade cooking or ready-made meals) or at restaurants in Japan. The restaurants include many tonkatsu specialty restaurants. Around Aichi Prefecture (central Japan including Nagoya), many restaurants provide sauce based on miso, which is quite unique. Because tonkatsu is delicious, why not try it when you are in Japan?

Potatoes and carrots grow in the soil, but lotus grows in wetlands with clayey soil. In Japan, nearly half of the renkon is grown around Kasumigaura in Ibaraki Prefecture.
