Food and Dining in Japan

Japan Travel Guide

Dining out in Japan is a definite highlight of any trip to the country. 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 easy to find fast-food outlets and British-style pubs. But the Japanese cuisine experience – from delicious wagyu beef to raw seafood – is striking and typically meals are served in a multi-dish style with small portions and a wide choice of items. From innovative teppanyaki cuisine to tempura to giant prawns to seared salmon, countrywide you’ll find a great culinary tradition to explore.
