Corn Soup

Corn soup (technically, corn potage, and that's what Japan calls it) is all the rage in Japan. It's made with lots of milk and is so creamy and delicious. It's pretty much everywhere in Japan, whether in the form of powdered instant soup mix or in a can sold from the vending machine or by the carton at your local supermarket. Often near the supposed "pizza." I don't know why.

9/366 - Corn (Potage) Soup. By the carton, even.


  1. It sure makes a colorful picture! I'm so glad you're doing this 365, it's so nice to read about Japanese culture! Whether it's about donating blood or soup, they never cease to amaze me.

  2. Through some weird miscommunication one of my Japanese friends thought I really liked this soup ... but in reality, I liked that soup with the minced pork and noodles!

  3. I like corn chowder, but this sounds odd. I guess it's the name more than anything else.


Talk to me.
