  • Q: In Japan, what is the most common dipping sauce for the hot pot dish Sukiyaki?

  • Hotel/Accommodations: Liveinasia.com
  • Farmer’s Market: Shop at a depachika (expansive food hall)
  • Favorite Dessert: Soft serve ice cream and shave ice are available in exotic flavors like black sesame or tea
