Have you eaten something very Japanese?
I would introduce 3 different types of Japanese local foods to tourists from foreign countries. I think some people might dislike them because of the uniqueness in texture.

Lightly Seared Chicken

Grilled Chicken Skewer Bar Restaurant - Yakitori Izakaya TORITETSU - Tataki - 焼き鳥 居酒屋 とり鉄 - たたき

One of this restaurant's specialties is lightly seared raw chicken, cooked rare. At the restaurant, this food is called...

総州 紅楽美のたたき 特製肝ぽん酢
Soshu Benirakumi-no-tataki Tokusei-kimo-ponzu
880 yen
* Soshu Benirakumi 総州 紅楽美 is a brand chicken in Japan.

This plate is made of rock salt. First, rob the meat on the rock salt.
Then, dip the meat in ponzu sauce with liver paste. (It is 特製肝ぽん酢 Tokusei-kimo-ponzu)
This dish tastes like fish sashimi but it is a little chewy.
(I think the amount of 1 item has for 2 people.)
Give it a try!

They use a type of chicken which is locally grown in Japan. It is a high quality chicken that is stored in a way so that it stays fresh, so it is safe to eat rare.
However, eating rare meat involves a certain amount of risk.
As a preventative measure, they ask that certain customers refrain from doing so, such as those who are not in good health, children, elderly persons, and pregnant women. They also advise customers to consume it within 30 minutes of serving.

Shiitake Mushroom

One of the most popular mushrooms in Japan is the Shiitake Mushroom (しいたけ, 椎茸), but it is less common in other countries.
Its flavor is unique and rather strong, so some kids and picky eaters don't like it. It's tasty. I've liked it since I was kid, but my sister still doesn't like it, even as an adult.
