No.46 Menchi-Katsu (メンチカツ)
        Menchi-Katsu is deep-fried ground meat cutlet. You can find it at teishoku restaurants and tonkatsu restaurants in Japan. You might be able to find it at butcher shops there. When I was living in Osaka, I loved menchi-katsu at a small deef-fried dish shop, Nakamuraya. They sell freshly deep-fried menchi-katsu, korokke, karaage and so on at very reasonable prices.

No.48 Natto (納豆)
     Natto is a traditional Japanese food made of fermented soy beans. It is very popular dish for breakfast in Japan. Some people don't like it because it's slimy texture and strong smell, but to me it's delicious, and I can eat every day. :) You can find natto at any supermarkets in Japan. If you are new to natto, I recommend you to try Kin-no-tsubu Niowanatto(金のつぶ におわなっとう), which has less natto smell. :)

No. 49 Monjayaki (もんじゃ焼き)
     Monjayaki is similar to okonomiyaki, but it's made of a dough more liquid than okonomiyaki. It's more often eaten in Kanto region, so I have had monjyayaki just a few times in my life since I used to live in Kyusyu and Kansai in Japan. If you go to Tokyo, you should try monjayaki there.

      Wagashi is a traditional Japanese sweet. It's usually made of sweet red bean pastes and mochi. It is usually served with green tea such as matcha. You can find many wagashi stores in Japan.
