Food!

One of the key aspects of a culture is its customs with food. Luckily we had PLENTY of opportunity to try all sorts of culturally typical Japanese foods.

I think he best way to learn about another culture is to completely immerse oneself in it.  One way of doing this is through a cultures food.  Luckily in Japan we got the opportunity to try many different foods.  I felt like by experiencing the food of Japan and the customs surrounding food, I better experienced the ancient Japanese culture.
