Japan is a country where unique culture and ideas are born. Many people from outside of Japan are often bewildered and mystified by things that Japanese do on an everyday basis.
Also, even if it's called a Japanese thing, often it varies based on region or area thanks to geography or history. Especially cuisine - even if dishes share names, depending on the region, the main ingredients or seasonings may differ. There are also many dishes that can only be found in certain regions.
