Japanese use the metric system and their own brand of cup size, called go (which I used to think was only used to measure rice). This is all a pain when trying to write for a varied, international audience.
Thankfully, the spoons are internationally the same. What a coincidence! Who would have thought that Oda Nobunaga ate with the same size spoons as Shakespeare? For your reference, 1 tablespoon is 15 ml and 1 teaspoon is 5 ml.
Here, however, are basic metric-US conversions and Japanese-US cup conversions. These are by no means exact! Numbers are rounded, but really awfully close.
(Note: I'll add to this as measuring difficulties come up.)
|1 go (Japanese cup)||200 ml (milliliters)||7/8 cups|
|240 ml||1 cup|
|100 ml||1/2 cup|
|1 liter||1/4 gallon|
|0 Celcius||32 Farenheit|
|100 C||212 F|
|190 C||375 F|
