What characterizes the unique Japanese aroma in classic Japanese dishes?

The classic Japanese aroma that characterizes Japanese cuisine is quite unique. There is no other country in the world that has something similar.

The Japanese aroma basically consists of seaweed and dried fish.
In Japan there are seaweed and dried fish in many varieties and qualities. However, not everyone is used to making the classic aroma. There are varieties of seaweed that are only suitable for sushi, some for salads, others to make a fund, etc. And this also applies to dried fish.

The picture shows several different types of dried fish. Small dried fish used only for certain Japanese dishes.
