Personal Notes:
I suggest you check Asian supermarkets for some of the ingredients. Mirin and Dashi may be difficult to obtain in some areas. If you live near Beaverton, Uwajimaya supermarket will have them if you ask the staff. Otherwise, you can substitute soup stock for Dashi and extra sugar and Sake (rice wine) for Mirin, though the taste will change a bit.
