This time it’s a story. I’m sure you’ve seen colorful cakes from overseas (USA) in movies and photos. However, I don’t think most cake shops and supermarkets in Japan carry colorful cakes.
这样做的原因是，当日本人看到五颜六色的蛋糕时，他们会认为这对他们的健康有害而不会购买。 那为什么这种五颜六色的蛋糕卖到海外（美国）呢？问题的答案是 这是因为日本人和外国（美国）有不同的颜色偏好。
As you can see from the chart above, blue food is not attractive to Japanese people, but blue is a favorite color in the United States. On the other hand, yellow-green is the most hated color in the United States, although it is favored by Japanese people. In this way, the colors preferred by countries and ethnic groups differ, so restaurants targeting inbound demand such as tourists may need to arrange colors to suit their customers. *In addition, the meaning of color changes depending on religion and culture.
