Japan Restaurants and Dining

Where and What to Eat in Japan

Fresh seafood and dining out in Japan are inseparable. After all, where else in the world can you find conveyor-belt sushi? Known for their longevity, the Japanese enjoy their food immensely and, in general, still manage to keep the ingredients healthy.

Of course if you’re hankering after western food it’s there to be found in fast-food outlets and in British-style pubs but the Japanese cuisine experience – from delicious wagyu beef to raw seafood – is striking and typically meals are served in multi-dish style with small portions but a wide choice of items. So from innovative teppanyaki cuisine to tempura to giant prawns to seared salmon, countrywide you’ll find a great culinary tradition to explore.
