When you’re in Japan, indulge in as much local food as you possibly can.
The usual traditional Japanese fares are generally flavored with a mix of salt, dashi, sugar, soy sauce, vinegar, sake and mirin.
If you always start your meal with a salad, then you should begin with the tsukidashi, an appetizer in Japan that equates to the hors-d'oeuvre or amuse-bouche. And aside from sushi, hot noodles are recommended in this country, especially those that are named kakeudon or kakesoba.
