But for a good snack, turn to POCKY!!!!!!!!!!!! Any flavour of pocky is great: vanilla, chocolate, green tea . . . They're all delicious!
I don't know much about Japanese food so correct me if I'm wrong. I havent eaten any real dishes but I've become a big fan of Pocky in a short time. I don't think I really need to explain what Pocky is it should be common knowledge.
Opps srry about this guys I accidently double posted.My bad won't happen again.

I have been living in Fussa (near Tachikawa..fyi), Tokyo Japan, going on two years now and I could tell you one thing....I will NEVER eat Japanese food ever again in the states. I went home to visit and thought that I would try it and it was just different then Japan. I don't really know how to explain the difference you, I could just tell. My suggestion would be go to Japan and if you do, here is a few things that is a must!
First off - Gyoza: Chinese ravioli-dumplings (potstickers), usually filled with pork and vegetables and pan-fried. (note: it could also be deep fried as well...both are good)
Second is -CURRY- (not Indian curry because that's nothing like they have here) but there is a very famous resturant called CoCo Ichiban. It's a thicker sauce then Indian curry if you ever had that.
Third would be - Tampura- deep-fried vegetables or seafood in a light, distinctive batter.
There is many more that I could mention but the last would have to be Nikumon...now that is something that is hard I think to find in the states. If you ever have the chance to try one....IT'S A MUST!!! It's a fluffy pork/beef/bean filled dumpling. I would suggest the Beef...I think it's the best.
I hope that I helped in some way.
