I used to live in Tokyo, and most people I met didn't eat rice in every meal. Breakfast for most Japanese is cereal, sometimes eggs. Very few people have the traditional rice, miso and fish for breakfast these days. Lunch is often eaten at restaurants, and my Japanese co-workers enjoyed food like hamburgers, spaghetti and other westernized dishes. We went to a variety of restaurants for lunch. Dinner also varies. Japan, like the US, has a very international food scene.
