One is a new rice pizza, developed only for the Japanese market by the pizza chain Domino’s.  Another is a Cup Noodle ice cream, sold only at the Cup Noodles Museum in Yokohama. Some of the same Japanese traits seen in its foods have also helped Japan pull off the improbable feat  of hosting the Tokyo Games in the midst of the pandemic.
