Meals in Japanese

Let's talk about Meals in Japanese Meals consist of Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner. These three are the most important meals. Every country or every person has different categories for their meals. But for this blog, I will only include common categories for Meals. My normal meals are Breakfast, Lunch, Snack time, and Dinner. As an Asian, Rice is a must in every meal. Breakfast also has rice. Though, I already reduced my consumption of rice because, well, I am not young anymore and I have to be careful with what I eat. しょくじ ( 食事 – Shokuji) means Meal in Japanese. Mealtime is しょくじのじかん ( 食事の時間 – Shokuji no jikan) .  Let's check the Japanese terms of mealtime. Rice is こめ ( 米 - Kome) in Japanese but the cooked Rice is called ごはん ( ご飯 - Gohan) . It can also translated to ライス (Raisu) for the Katakana sound. おごはんはすきですか? ( おご飯は好きですか? ) (Ogohan ha suki desu ka?) Do you like Rice? Food is たべもの ( 食べ物 - Tabemono) 、 while Japanese dish or food is called にほんりょうり
