What is the most eaten vegetable by Japanese people? According to a survey by the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare, it is daikon or Japanese radish, except for vegetable juice and processed goods.
The results were based on the survey of 32,000 people across Japan who were older than one, according to a TBS report.
Onions ranked second, while cabbage ranked third. Carrots were 5th, tomatoes 7th and bell peppers 14th.
According to the ministry, the average daily intake of vegetables for adults was 282 grams, although the desirable daily intake is 350 grams.
