Tasting the local cuisine
is one of the highlights of any visit to Japan. Sushi and Sashimi are
two of the most well known kinds of Japanese food, but that doesn't
mean raw fish is the only thing on the menu! In fact, you'll probably
be surprised by the wonderful variety of dishes there are to try,
including Yakitori (barbecued chicken kebabs), Tendon (rice topped
with deep-fried prawns), Ramen, Udon & Soba (Japanese noodles), and
Shabu Shabu (beef and vegetable slices cooked in a light broth).
Dining in Japan's major cities can be a truly multicultural
experience. In lively downtown areas you will find Japanese
restaurants alongside those serving cuisine from around the globe.
There is something to suit every taste and budget, from elegant
restaurants and hotel dining to noodle bars and fast food outlets.
