Japanese culture, which can be called "a culture of harmony," places importance on harmony among friends.
日本文化は「和の文化」ともいわれ、仲間同士の和を大事にします。
One cultural form for confirming harmony involves friends getting together to drink sake and eat, and nabe-ryori is appropriate for such gatherings.
その和を確認するために仲間が集まって酒を飲み、食事をするのはその文化の型の1つですが、そんな集まりに鍋料理は適しています。
Soup stock and ingredients are put in a pot and heated; four or five persons sit around it, put soup and ingredients from the pot into their own bowls and eat.
鍋の中に汁と具を入れて温め、それを囲んで4か5人が適当に鍋の中から具と汁を自分の食器に取って食べます。
This enhances the bond of friendship and stimulates the discussion.
仲間意識が持て、話もはずみます。
There are all sorts of ingredients and soup stocks, as many flavors and ways of preparing, in fact, as there are households.
具も汁もさまざまな種類があり、家庭の数と同じだけ味や作り方の種類があるとさえいえます。
Typical ingredients include fish, shellfish, a variety of vegetables and meats, and soup stocks are seasoned by soy bean paste or soy sauce.
代表的な具としては魚、貝類、あらゆる野菜、肉類などで、汁は味噌や醤油などで味付けされます。
