Ramen with Gyoza and Fried Rice.

Ton-jiru (miso soup with pork and extra veggies) Lots of winter festivals and events hand it out.

Ramen for me, especially tonkotsu

Udon, edamame, any kind of sashimi.

I'd say miso soup is my Japanese comfort food. 'Specially when it's my wife's.

I have to say, I can't really think of any Japanese food I would find as comfort food. The closest is mashed potatoes, and even that's not distinctively Japanese.

For me, it's 'murasaki imo taiyaki'.

Katsudon

Omu rice

Kare raisu

All great stodgy foods with plenty of sauce to help the rice go down.

Good Maki-sushi made with fresh salad ingredients and seafood - shrimp, squid, salmon, crab etc.

Light, tasty and refreshing. Perfect with alcohol and friends.

Soba or udon for me.

Rice and miso soup go together like horse and carriage. Tempura rice.  Tonkatsu. Korokke. Sweet cakes and green tea. Fried ice cream.

Salmon flake onigiri, 7/11 oden, pizza man, gyoza, grilled fish (esp. hokke), sushi without avacado or mayonaise - all binge-worthy.

Everyone's different, innit.

Could be ochazuke, or omrice, or ramen, or oden, or onigiri, or tamago kake gohan, or miso soup, or curry rice, or nabe with whatever ingredients you like best, or whatever food makes you happy.

Mine used to be oden in the cold months, and uni in summer. At the moment it's sweet potato.

My idea? I think for Japanese people it's onigiri. For me it's gyoza with Huy Fong Sriracha sauce.
