Japanese (Kanji)

Kanji are the Chinese characters that are used in the modern Japanese logographic writing system along with hiragana, katakana, Arabic numerals, and the occasional use of the Latin alphabet. The Japanese term kanji literally means "Han characters". (Ref: Wikipedia)

Japanese Kanji on

To find foods and food-related items in in Japanese you may search by any of the following terms:
Japan Japanese Kanji

These terms associated with languages are hidden behind the scenes . In some cases people will not know that they are using an Kanji version of a word, so Japanaese is sufficient

You may use any of the above terms in any search you make using 'Translate from English' so that if you wish to search for a translation of shittake, choose whichever of these language terms that you think is most appropriate, say:
'Japanese shiitake' or 'Kanji shiitake' and then click on 'Translate from English'.

One of the problems of providing searches in a multilingual world-wide food dictionary is trying to help people reach the things they are searching for. People do not always know the precise language being used, so these more general searches such as  'Jaoanese' may help in a successful search.

Also included in the glossary are dishes from the cuisine of the region, cookery terms, cooking methods, drinks, food festivals, days of the week, months of the year etc.
