What does the Japanese prefer to eat on a hot summer day?

There are many people in Denmark who believe that Japanese people eat a lot of sushi. The Japanese love sushi but sushi accounts for less than 15% of Japanese cuisine.
In Japan sushi is a style that does not match a busy weekday it is a dish most often enjoyed over a couple of hours.

What are usually eaten on a busy and hot summer day is noodles. In Japan, noodles are a broad concept and covers several different noodles and food styles.
The dish I have in mind is soba noodles that can be eaten both cold and hot. During the summer, it is always eaten cold with a dip such as consists of soy sauce. It is a light dish which is easy to digest.
