The Japanese might categorize a typical breakfast as either Japanese-style or Western-style.
In Japan, many hotels serve both Japanese and Western dishes for breakfast, and even those who may not necessarily eat a Japanese breakfast at home may choose to do so when at a hotel.
Often, hotels serve buffet-style breakfasts, where popular Japanese offerings include rice, miso soup, grilled fish, kimpira-gobo sautéed burdock root and carrot, hijiki-no-nimono simmered sea vegetable, tofu, natto fermented soybeans, pickles, nori and soft-boiled eggs. Accompanied by rice and miso soup, people enjoy creating a personal Japanese-style breakfast from this tempting variety of side dishes.
