Curry Bath?

Curry is a common dish in Japan. The British introduced the ingredients to Japan in Meiji era (1868-1912), at the time when India was under British colonial rule. India is of course, the home nation of curry.

Over the years Japanese improvise the taste and their curry becomes a national dish with its own distinctive flavour.

Curry features more often in daily meals than sushi or tempura etc. The later two are probably more iconic from foreigners’ point of view though.

One of the factors of its popularity is that people can make it easily with packages from convenient stores. Just heat up the pack and add in some veges and meats, and it’s edible in a few minutes.
