Hi Friends,

We bought these products from Japan in a hurry but are not sure what they are exactly. Can someone please translate for us? The image is hi res and you can zoom in and check.

As far as I can see, from the left:

1. Powdered, dried seaweed
2. Chopped, dried parsley
3. Basil (whole)
4. Dressing/condiment made from mustard and "miso" bean paste, with a tangy flavor (it is the yellowish sauce that is sitting on octopus slices and probably cucumber slices? in the photo of the package)
5. Powdered green tea (for about 100 Japanese teacup servings)

Note that, according to the labels, the parsley and basil were grown in the U.S. They are meant to be used Western style, such as sprinkling them into stews and things as you cook them.

The other foods are everyday Japanese items, and are typically used without heating them. The dried seaweed is typically used as toppings on things like takoyaki and okonomiyaki. The label on the tea says it can be used with either hot or cold water.
