Pictorial calorie guide for the kanji-challenged

If you can read even a little Japanese, this pictorial guide to the calorie content of common Japanese foods can be a big help when watching your weight.  I mean, who knew that a typical portion of katsu kare (fried pork cutlet with curry sauce and rice) has a whopping 909 calories!? A bowl of kitsune udon does less damage.

Each food is pictured, which makes it a lot easier to find what you want.  Nutritional information provided includes calories, fat, protein, carbohydrates, cholesterol, sodium, etc. You can find this guide at your local book store, or click on the Japanese below to go to the product page for it on Amazon Japan. The price is ¥ 1,785.
