Nimono means stewed or simmered dishes. Here are a few examples:

  • Kakuni - Chunks of pork belly stewed in soy, mirin and sake with large pieces of daikon and whole boiled eggs. The Okinawan variation, using awamori, soy sauce and miso, is known as rafuti.
  • Nikujaga - Beef and potato stew, flavoured with sweet soy.
  • Nizakana - Fish poached in sweet soy (often on the menu as "nitsuke").
  • Soki - Okinawan dish of pork stewed with bone.
