Curry Then And Curry Now
You probably didn’t know that curry has become so integral to the Japanese diet, you’d think it’s only so in India. For example, down Tokyo streets, you’re as likely to find a curry joint as you are a sushi or soba restaurant. The dish was unknown in Japan until about 150 years ago. Japan’s feudal system isolated the country for so long that when Japan opened up its doors to the outside world in the late 19th century, not only foreign science and technology entered, but foreign food as well.
