Cooked rice is a standard part of most Japanese meals. Unlike at dinner, when rice is usually served at the end of the meal before desert, rice is served at the beginning of the meal during breakfast and eaten alongside the other dishes.
A bowl of miso soup is another integral part of a Japanese style breakfast. It is made by dissolving miso paste in fish stock and adding additional ingredients such as wakame seaweed, green onion and tofu.
An assortment of pickles accompanies breakfast. Among the most common varieties of pickles for breakfast are pickled daikon (takuan) and pickled plums (umeboshi).
A small piece of grilled fish, usually salted salmon, is a common element to Japanese breakfasts. Typically the fish has been seasoned before being served.
Eggs are usually served either fried or as onsen tamago, i.e. boiling at about 65 degrees Celcius (preferably in natural hot spring water), resulting in a creamy, partially set white and just thickening yolk. Onsen tamago are flavored with fish stock and a little bit of soy sauce.
Breakfast often includes a small salad with either a soy sauce based vinaigrettes or mayonnaise based dressing.
Local, seasonal vegetables often appear again at breakfast and are usually cooked in a style unique to the ryokan or its region.
Made of fermented soybeans and usually eaten on top of rice, natto has a strong smell and sticky texture. It is often flavored with Japanese mustard (karashi).
