“I got this recipe from Makiko Oda's cookbook(page 96) This can be for breakfast. Although I really dislike natto, my younger brothers love it. For one person this can cost 37 yen! (37 cents). Sorry, the proper measurements aren't listed for some ingredients, for dried bonito it says to use an appropriate amount. For the salt and pepper it says to only use a little.”
