Tanpopo = Dandelion by Jūzō Itami( Visual )

115 editions published between 1985 and 2017 in 7 languages and held by 1,698 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A tall, dark cowboy-hatted stranger named Goro rides into town on a milk truck and enters the nearest noodle shop, run by Tampopo. Tampopo's sweet demeanor cannot change the fact that her food is inedible. The brash Goro resolves to take the shopowner under his wing, and together, they embark on a quest to discover the perfect noodle soup recipe. Described by Itami as a "ramen western" due to its similarity to Shane and the spaghetti western, this "gastronomic comedy of table manners" satirizes Japanese mores in a hilarious series of vignettes which also provide a catalogue of culinary delights
Sasameyuki = The Makioka sisters by Jun'ichirō Tanizaki( Visual )

8 editions published between 1983 and 2011 in Japanese and held by 552 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Japan, 1938. War is looming on the horizon, but the Makioka sisters are far more concerned with their domestic troubles. The sisters live in Osaka, and are well off, traveling together to view the changing of the seasons--cherry blossoms in Kyoto, brilliant leaves in the fall. Tsuruko and Sachiko, the older two, have been married for quite some time. Tradition demands that they marry in order of their birth, but marrying off the shy, conservative Yukiko is proving difficult. These challenges have been particularly frustrating for youngest sister Taeko, who is eager to marry and move on with her life. A graceful study of a family at a turning point in history, and a poignant evocation of changing times and fading customs
