Restaurants in Japan

Japan restaurants offer delectable choices. Japan is famous for its sushi and sake. Many restaurants in Japan offer various forms of these native choices. You may choose from upscale dining or market dining. Although sushi has become well known around the world, the variety of fresh choices in Japan restaurants is outstanding and even sometimes overwhelming. But the owners and servers usually speak English and are happy to help. Other Japanese traditional dishes include Sukiyaki which is thinly sliced beef prepared at your table, tempura which is breaded deep fried vegetables, fish or other meats, Kaiseki-ryori which is Japanese haute cuisine, and of course the well known noodles, soba and udon. Restaurants in Japan offer some of the freshest foods you will find in the world coupled with delectable spices.

In Tokyo, travelers will find a wide range of choices when it comes to western food. The international district is home to American, French, and German restaurants. Tokyo is truly a world class city.
