This sounds like such an enriching experience! Japanese food is delicious, but I find the relation to texture in Asian countries to be very different. I had a couple surprises buying snacks I’ve never seen, expecting them to be salty because of the texture/ingredients and they turn out sweet - or vice versa.

I feel there’s also a lot of different jelly-like textures not too common in the West. Always fun to experiment!
