I am making Japanese food soon and I need a nice wine to go with it.

I love Japanese food and I’ll be moving to Alicante, Spain soon. Does anyone know any good places that sell Japanese food such as confectionaries, candies and traditional things?

Japanese Influence on Other Cuisines from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Teppanyaki is said to be an American invention, as is the California roll (not to mention the Philadelphia roll), and while the former has been well received in Japan the latter has not and has, at worst, been termed not sushi by Japanese people. However thanks to some recent trends in American culture such as Iron Chef and Benihana, Japanese culinary culture is slowly fusing its way into American life. Japanese food, which had been quite exotic in the West as late as the 1970s, is now quite at home in parts of the continental United States, and has become an integral part of food culture in Hawaii.
