During the Meiji period Japan started to become internationalized, it was at this time that new innovations in recipes took hold such as sukiyaki using beef, and Italian pasta was introduced as well. While it found some popularity at this time, it was really in the post-World War Two period that it became more established as American GI’s brought a demand for Italian-American dishes to Japan. It has since spread across the country and can now be found everywhere from Japanese homes to family restaurants and convenience stores. While more authentic Italian-style pasta is eaten in Japan, uniquely Japanese-style wafu pasta is also popular. Wafu pasta features ingredients typically eaten with white rice that are instead mixed with spaghetti noodles. Here’s a guide to some of the most popular varieties!
