A classical Japanese dinner is very different from a European dinner.
The Japanese eats many small meals for dinner. A Japanese meal consists of 6-10 small dishes with seafood, rice, various vegetables and different kind of meat. Japanese dishes are very light in texture and is usually enjoyed over several hours.
Like so many others Japanese work many hours per week which means that they do not have time to cook dinner during the week.
I Tokyo you will finde a wide range of take-away stands and noodle bars which serves noodle soup of very high quality. The noodle soup is cheap and many Japanese visits a noodle bar several times during a week.
In this way Japanese still manage to eat healthy and have a varied diet.
