One of the side-missions (or as they are called in-game, "substories") in Yakuza 3 has you collecting ingredients for making bitter-melon juice. Some old lady is making the juice and she tells you to bring her the following:
- Goya - bitter melon (though this possibly appears as "Balsam Pear" in the American version of the game, based on this FAQ. Search for "Ryuukyuugai no Nanafushigi Sono4")
- Kuruzata - brown sugar ("black sugar" in the American version)
- Dugwai - aloe
- Basanai - banana, you can replace it with the more expensive "island banana."
- Lemon - well, it's a lemon, though you can replace it with a Shikwasa
The only reason I knew which word meant what is because of the FAQ I linked to. Is there any way for me to have figured this out in-game, or does the game expect me to be Japanese/look it up?
