Japanese Breakfast

A traditional Japanese breakfast consists of Miso Soup, cooked rice, seaweed, pickled vegetables, and green tea. Many people in Japan eat western breakfasts as well. A western breakfast in Japan consists of bread, yogurt, eggs, jam and sausages or ham. As for the beverage, the most popular choices (in order of popularity) are milk, coffee, green tea and English tea.

People who prepare their own breakfast or factory workers generally prefer the western style breakfast because it takes less time to prepare and to eat. Most people who eat a western style breakfast will finish their meal within five minutes. People who eat a traditional Japanese breakfast take between 15 and 30 minutes. The majority of Japanese people watch television while eating breakfast.

In the picture taken from the Ranma manga, Akane and Ukyo can be seen eating a traditional Japanese breakfast.
