Home breakfast in Japan

Here are some of my breakfast photos at parents while I was visiting them in Japan.
I thought it was interesting to share, because they look very different from western ones.

Now I live in Melbourne and have very different breakie (or even skip breakie) what I used to have with them,
but every year when I visit them, I enjoy typical(?) style Japanese breakfast.

It looks a lot, but many Japanese eat a lot from the morning.
Of course, it needs lots of preparation, but people make it for family.
Sometimes some left over from the dinner might be served.(It often happen in my family)
There is no natto in these photos, but sometimes natto will be served, too. (yum!)

Nothing special, everyday breakie at my parents since I was little.
