Natto is awesome, but I always get weird looks at the store when buying it.

Natto + shiso sauce + quail egg = yum.

And it's cheap and healthy, too.

We had a group of Japanese exchange students at my college one year, and the first day we took them to the cafeteria, they gawked at the melon mix on the salad bar and wondered if they were actually allowed to have some.  Apparently melons are a really expensive delicacy in Japan, so it was cute watching them stare at a cup of diced cantaloupe like we were serving them caviar.  They also ate grilled cheese with a fork.

Most fruit is quite expensive here. Melons in particular command a ridiculous price and are usually given as gifts.

Is it because land is such a premium there? This explains why beef is outlandishly priced and Japanese folders flock to Austrailia.

Gonna have to disagree with you there; the only Japanese titties of any good size are only found in porno magazines, never real life.

When I was living in Japan, I sometimes got natto sushi from the convenience store.  It's funny how that's like the one food that is famous for being hated by foreigners.  My EFL students always asked me "Can you eat natto?"  I told them it was OK, but it wasn't one of my favorites.

I understand all the references in the article and why a Japanese wife would consider them strange, but it also means those girls/women need to get out more.  It'd be like an American woman being married to a guy from, say, Saudi Arabia, and saying "I don't understand why he watches American football on TV.  It's so strange!"

My foreign husband is so quirky! He buys soiled knickers from local high school girls and wears them over his head with the gusset across his nose and mouth while furiously masturbating to children's cartoons. So wacky and strange!

So, what are the difficulties with that? Is it just as competitive as academic learning? Are there ninja cramming classes so you can get into the best dojos? Do you have problems when your children simply disappear around bath time? Do they constantly leave nunchuks and shuriken lying around to step on?

I like namako.
Food I had problems with were konyaku (no taste), grated yamaimo (half of it went down my throat, the other half stayed in my mouth. Then the half then had gone down twanged back up again), konbu and wakame (I'm not a farking ocean rabbit), and uni.
I like all of those now.

Except the seaweed crap.

Because I'm not a farking sea bunny.

That's actually a serious question, I've only ever seen pictures, and it looks pretty tasty.

It contains some kind of alcohol compound that gives it the taste of ammonia. I've had it twice and both times were horrible.

And I'm not a pussy when it comes to food; I'll try anything: crickets, chicken sashimi (don't try the chicken sashimi; the risk of campylo is *not* worth the risk)

Namako is inoffensive, if not good.

Ha, i looked it up, someone described sea squirt as "satan's boogers"

I think natto is gross, boogery consistency, and the taste is unappealing as well, but there are worse foods out there...

Surprisingly little about how Japanese women make that horrible nasal moaning during sex, as if one's impressive penis was somehow stranding them on the tipping point between pain and pleasure.

2014-01-31 10:21:39 AM  
... I liked natto.  I generally like foods that I haven't had before.

CSB:  Last time I was in Japan, I was there for a friend's wedding, and my parents had come along with me and my wife.  My mother goes into instant culture shock when crossing state borders, so every meal suggestion was "oh, it's an irish/english-style pub" or "look, an italian restaurant," or "Hey - there's a McDonalds, lets go there!"

At one point, after guaranteeing that they were ok - in line at a KFC - I ditched them, walked along the street till I found a place that smelled of food and had one of those short curtains you have to brush out of the way and walked in.

It might be good at this point to note that I know all of about 8 words of Japanese, and those were from subtitled Voltron episodes from the 80's.

I went in, sat down, looked stupid, and pointed at the various signs on the walls that work like a menu with individual items.  Got 3 things.  No idea what they were.  They were all awesome.

Spent the rest of the time talking to a japanese man who had learned english one word at a time by reading the "learn english language" section of a newspaper for the last 50 years.  He had been a POW in WW2, and after being treated well and fed well by his enemies, he realized that americans were actually pretty good people.  Very awesome guy, though very hard to understand.

He also pointed me to a takoyaki stand (octopus breaded in half-cooked pancake batter with savory brown sauce and mayonaise on top).

2014-01-31 10:38:23 AM  
Never married a Japanese woman, but dated a few while living there and yeah the behaviors span the gamut of adorable to downright weird.

Examples: I was a smoker while over there (it's pretty much ubiquitous) and anytime I put a cigarette to my lips and reached for a lighter, the woman I was with would stop me to light it herself, as if to say "no, that's for me to do". As a Canadian, my first reaction was mild shock, as I could never imagine any woman back home doing anything like that for her man. It was just part of the seduction, showing she was willing to "serve" her man, as it were. Also, as the man, I was expected to pick up the tab, no questions asked. Again, initial mild shock. Doing this back home could be interpreted in all sorts of ways, from indifference to pleasure to offense. I know this sounds like something straight out of a hostess bar, but I realized that such places just imitated real life over there, with an extra helping of "servile", I suppose.

One woman I dated worked as a cashier in a Seiyu (supermarket chain) and always spoke an octave or two higher when serving customers (standard for anyone working in the service industry), then switched back to her regular tone among family and friends. However, when she was with me, she'd go back and forth. Weird as hell.

The most adorable thing was what was referred to as a "get well lunch". If I ever came down with a cold, my gf would swing by with a bento lunch filled with food to get my health back up (sashimi, miso, ginger, pickled vegetables - no fried or starchy stuff), along with a couple packs of that vitamin-injected jelly that looked like what they give to astronauts; all wrapped up in a cloth. I still smile when I think about that.

Another adorable thing was that everyone seemed to have one thing they were completely obsessed about. One gf loved the smell of Gain fabric softener so much that when laundry came out of the dryer, she would lay the clothes out and methodically take deep breaths out of each and everyone before folding them. Another loved anything Barbie, and when I brought her back some collector cards from an otaku convention in Tokyo, she flipped out and sang a song about it.

God, I miss that place, sometimes.

Yes, the women in the article were less than fit.  I think what happens is that Japanese gals that marry foreigners are often too old and unattractive for Japanese fellow.  My understanding is that once a woman gets over 30, she's over the hill.  So these dudes end up marrying ugmos because those are the most eager as no Japanese man will have them.  Now someone who has actually been to Japan can correct my false assumptions.

It's actually mostly because almost no one in Japan is interested in sex anymore, so the few who are have to import it.

Dear Japanese ladies with weird foreigner husbands,  yes, you married weirdos,  just like the Japense man you didn't want to marry because he needs to sleep on a pillow that looks like a motherly figure with boobies..

This is the REAL problem with Barbie and all other sorts of dolls.  They allow the little girls to make up this fantasy of what life is supposed to be like between a man and a woman without any actual input from the other side.  They "play house" while the boys are out doing other activities.  The girls' "play" is acting how they think it is supposed to be to be grown up.  All this time, they see everything the boys are doing as childish.  They feel as though the boys are supposed to change how they act, while they, themselves, remain essentially the same.

Many women don't want a husband.  They want an animated doll they can control.  When the doll doesn't act the way he is "supposed to", they get frustrated with their toy and want a new one.

aelat: "My American husband will eat absolutely anything. He sometimes requests pancakes for dinner." This man is a genius!

I thought Asians were supposed to be smart?

Then again, pancakes for dinner - mmm...

After RTFA: "I obviously have been misled by j-pr0n."

Yes, the women in the article were less than fit.  I think what happens is that Japanese gals that marry foreigners are often too old and unattractive for Japanese fellow.  My understanding is that once a woman gets over 30, she's over the hill.  So these dudes end up marrying ugmos because those are the most eager as no Japanese man will have them.  Now someone who has actually been to Japan can correct my false assumptions.

I disagree. He does a spot-on job of impersonating Japanese Elvis.

Alienzushi: Getting a kick...foreign husband of Japanese wife living in Tokyo. My situation is compounded in that my wife is 14 yrs younger. Plenty of room for misunderstandings but we've learned to laugh at most things. Having crotchfruit adds to the fun with concerns regarding education, language learning, healthcare, ninja training, holidays & on & on.


Do the locals still scatter away from you when you board the train? I was there on business, well dressed, well bathed, etc. Repeatedly when riding trains parents would shield their children from me and most would move as far away as possible. My Korean colleague had it much, much worse. The "Oh gross a foreigner" quote in the article reminded me of the experience.

The situation has shifted in recent times; first to as New Year's Eve soba (toshikoshi soba; you eat that on the 31st), but more recently, there's nothing, because women in Japan are becoming more independent and are getting married much later.

My ex wife was (still is, I guess) Japanese. It was pretty cool going and staying with her family, and actualy eating normal Japanese dinners rather than an American take on Japanese food. (He father didn't stand at a grill and bang spatulas around and make giant fireballs and flip food all over the place and make onion volcanos...who knew?). I liked most everything. Octopus and Squid I already ate while I was in Korea, I discovered how mich I loved Takoyaki, but I found natto to be absolutely horrible. Top 5 foods I hate.

On a ANA plane to Japan with the (ex)wife, and being a Japanese plane, they served Japanese food. I got a box with two types of things and two types of sauce. (I seem to remember one sauce came in a little plastic fish). After tasting both things and both sauces, I happily dumped sauce #1 on thing #2 and begain eating. Wife was wigged out for some reason. "What the hell are you doing?" 'Um...I'm eating whatever the hell this is right here' "But why you put Takanohanna (or whatever) sauce on it? You don't put that sauce on it!" 'I dunno. It's good this way. I like how whatever these two things are together  taste like. You wanna try?' "No. That's strange. You're strange."

I guess I might have been the same way if she was putting ketchup on oatmeal or mayonase on beef stew.

hstein3: quietwalker: He also pointed me to a takoyaki stand (octopus breaded in half-cooked pancake batter with savory brown sauce and mayonaise on top).

I really never cared for it, but perhaps I never had it prepared properly. I always found it to be far too rubbery for my taste.


I love it, but it has to be fresh, a big part is all the toppings: takoyaki sauce, bonito flakes, wasabi, etc. the actual octopus pieces inside are usually pretty tiny.

I got frozen takoyaki at a local japanese grocery, and it was pretty repulsive.

I saw tons of super hot japanese chicks all over hideous men, most of the women looked under 30. I mean, these were men who would never ever pull an attractive chick in the US/Canada, maybe not even an unattractive woman. It was a little bizarre for me, as i had previously lived in korea, and the korean women in general stayed far away from the american men.

I doubt there's much of a financial incentive to marry a military enlistee or a broke canadian english teacher. this was tokyo though. I've heard in the rural areas foreigners are much less likely to date japanese women. okinawans for example have a pretty negative view of americans.

I think a lot of the japanese women were really intrigued by the cultural differences, but ultimately, I saw a lot of women being treated pretty badly by the americans, especially military dudes. but japanese men have a pretty bad reputation in terms of how they treat their wives, so maybe that was marginally better for some of those girls?

I have a friend whose cousin married a japanese woman. She said she wanted to live in "a house with a yard".

Haven't found freshly made takoyaki around me unfortunately, but I can back you up on the frozen part. Japanese frozen food is typically pretty good, but dear god frozen takoyaki tastes like someone rolled cat food in a batter...

I actually like the chewy octopus part the best ...  I actually don't like pancake, and half-cooked pancake batter is even worse.  I end up waiting for them to cool down, scraping some portion of the breading off, and eating the tentacle and toppings.

I was reading something a good long time ago about cultural differences in foods, and one of the bigger differences between western cultures and eastern cultures is in appreciation for textures.  By and large, westerners do not like rubbery/rough/chewy food like octopus, tripe, and various organ meats, whereas it's all good eats for eastern cultures.

I guess I've just sat through enough meals of offal and vinegar-soaked pigs ears that it's grown on me.
