Oh wow, I actually found time to continue this series! I really should finish telling this story before I forget stuff! Some details are already getting blurry D:

Ah, prison food. Pictured here was my first breakfast: scrambled egg roll in the shape of a sakura flower and dyed pink with a meatball on some pasta, Japanese pickles, and a LOT of rice with some black sesame seeds on top. We also get a bowl of miso soup and after we finish it we can refill our bowls with either hot water or green tea.
For lunch and dinner, the largest compartment will have some kind of fried meat or fish, and the rice will be given in a separate container instead.
We're given two bottles of condiments: soy sauce and something that is simply called... "sauce". You should use them because otherwise the meals hardly taste like anything. You only have one go at it so once you give it back to the guards, there's no turning back. I dowsed my rice with sauce until it was a black soppy mess.
There is actually a vegetarian option but they don't tell you about it! On my second evening I was having dinner with a girl from another cell and she only realized that she could get vegetarian because she saw someone else's veggie meal. However, the guards refused to switch her meals to vegetarian, stating that she ate the meat from her past meals anyway. Since she didn't die or get sick from eating the meat, there was no reason to change her meal options. Boo.
