Ever since my childhood, I have watched at least one fruit which is being served no matter where we go during Ramadan for Iftar. That fruit is dates (a speciality of Middle Eastern cultures). It is served at the time of Iftar almost at every table. The dates have got an almost ubiquitous status.
You can easily find dates along with other Halal food items by visiting any of the halal food stores scattered all around Japan.
