Ok sense i have never been to japan i have to ask if i ever get a chance to go i love the culture one of my favorite ways to experience the culture is the food. So that being said what are some must try dishes that one should eat when they first go to japan? What are some of your favorite dishes and treats?

I really liked the fried mochi from some street shops. It is a very tasty treat.

Oya kodon; it a bowl of rice with egg and vegetables and usually comes with a meat. My favorite is the yaki tori. It's a strip of chicken on a stick that you can get cheap from vendors on bicycles on street corners. Next time, I want to try the icecream bars you can get from their street vending machines.

If I'm not mistaken, Oyakodon is, very specifically, the veggie and rice bowl you describe with chicken and a lightly fried egg on it.

Superbly tasty!

The name is funny, with 'oya' meaning big and 'ko' meaning small. Big and small. Chicken and egg. Whoohoo! Fun for the whole family. Well, not for the chicken family, perhaps, but I digress.

Speaking of vending machines, is there anything tastier than a cold beer from a vending machine? Nay, I thinketh not! Just don't get carried away... ; )

Another one to look for is okonomiyaki. Kind of an omlette sort of thing with meat (or not), veggies, tonkatsu sauce and (drum roll please) mayonnaise.

Epic DROOL!

The bonito flakes are an added thrill. Watch 'em twist...watch 'em curl!

For these and other gastric delights, tell your friends or hosts in Japan that you'd like to do dinner at an izakaya. It's the classic Japanese equivalent of an informal restaurant pub with lots of tasty little dishes all tailor made to go down easy with the beer and sake.

Rest assured that you won't find jalapeno sliders or chicken fingers on the menu. Just jump in and try anything, or better still let the locals choose for you! You're not in Kansas any more now, are you?

Actually, I believe the kanji for 'oya' is parent, and the 'ko' is child.
