... of greens, carrot and mushroom, a plate of little salty fishies and a dish of burdock root. This is a very traditional style meal which is high in calcium and low in calories and has kept many Japanese older people going to a ripe age. We also were given a taste of red beans which were cooked in a sugary sauce and are high in protein as well as a pasty stuff which is a by product of sake and had an alcoholic taste.
