Breakfast

えいごで: As may have been noted before, fish is eaten rather a lot in Japan, including at breakfast.

Japanese: 日本のあさごはんにさかなをたべます。

えいごで: Of course, of one doesn’t feel like eating fish in the morning one can always get a Japanese western-style breakfast. A good cafe will serve a western breakfast at half the price of a cup of coffee. These breakfasts seem to be popular among the Japanese business-people and elderly. I conjecture that the first group takes advantage of the speed, and the second group has a nostalgic liking for the toast. Bread was distributed in their youth by the occupation authorities as a cheap substitute for white rice.

Japanese: ウェスタンのあさごはん。

Japanese: 日本のあさごはんの方がおいしいです。
