Curry became popular in Japan in the early 20th century. The Japanese navy adopted British curry to their taste by first thickening it then adding carrots, onions and potatoes for sweetness. Unlike Indian curry, Japanese Curry is not spicy. Each prefecture has its own curry style with its protein preference. We want get as close as possible to the true Japanese curry dish: warm, hearty and sweet.
