Japanese has more variety of expressions for food; the expressions have been changed through the times. In Japanese, "metaphor," "onomatopoeia," and "adjectives generally not for food" are often used to express the taste and texture of food. Which and how the expression is used depends on individual sensibility based on location and generation; especially, the youngers sometimes use new expressions. Since, it is difficult to extract Japanese taste and texture expressions from Web reviews based on a fixed dictionary. This paper proposes an interactive framework to collect Japanese taste and texture expressions for food. Using the proposed framework, varied and many expressions would be semi-automatically collected. Based on the collected expressions, the sentiment analysis for food will be facilitated.
