Japanese Curry History:
The history of curry eating in Japan can be traced back to the Meiji Restoration period. It was introduced from Europe, and most of the spices originated from India.
But different from Indian curry, Japanese curry has sweet taste in its spicy flavor, usually because of the addition of concentrated puree into the curry to increase its sweetness, and some stores will add low sugar chocolate to increase its viscosity and sweetness.
