Food & Dining
Japanese food is becoming increasingly popular all over the world. It is healthy, simple yet beautiful and delicate in flavour. Sushi is found all over the world now but for some other Japanese fare, try soba or udon noodles. There is also a host of regional delicacies such as okonomiyaki in the Kansai region. If you prefer to drink, try some sake or shochu – Japanese spirits.
Japanese cuisine offers palate-tickling sensations that range from elegant kaiseki cuisine to the hearty basics of noodles and rice bowls. Each region has developed its own local delicacies and some of the best world-class chefs have established their restaurants in Japan. Tokyo alone is home to more Michelin-stared restaurants than New York or Paris. A visit to a local sake brewery will give you the opportunity to enjoy the harmony of rice wine and Japanese cuisine.
