When it comes to dining out in Tokyo, there is no shortage of variety. With en estimated 60,000 restaurants in Japan’s capital, there is something for every palate and price range, from the high-priced delights of Nobu Matsuhisa, to fresh sushi served at the famous Tsukiji Market. To the delight of many tourists, dining out in Tokyo is relatively affordable.
Lunch is an excellent time to try new restaurants, as prices are typically half the dinnertime equivalent in exclusive areas such as Ginza and Harajuku. Lunchtime is also a great opportunity to join in the multiple queues which form all over the city for bento-boxes (lunchboxes packed with a selection of rice, vegetables, and shellfish).
