Green tea is served with every Traditional Japanese Meal.

Agedashi Tofu are deep fried tofu slices dipped in soy sauce
Tempura is deep fried seafood or vegetables coated with tempura mix.
Tonkatsu are deep fried pork cutlets.
Okonomiyaki a simple warming comfort food, eaten in restaurants or better even – at food stalls in festivals.
It is basically made from flour, eggs and cabbage. The toppings can be meat, seafood, wasabi or cheese. The toppings change according to the region.
