Japanese Food – One of the Best Cuisines in the World!
Japanese food is one of the main reasons for a trip to Japan for many people. As a matter of fact, some people visit Japan specifically for the unique dishes you can eat here. Japanese cuisine is known worldwide for its delicacies such as sushi, ramen, wagyu beef, unagi, and many more. Such high-quality meals, great presentation, and many skilled chefs make Japanese cuisine stand out. Therefore it comes as no surprise that Japan is the country with the most Michelin Stars, second only to France. As a matter of fact, the Most Michelin Starred City in the world is Tokyo, while Kyoto and Osaka are 3rd and 4th respectively. Because of this, you will have many opportunities to eat at renowned restaurants.
However, if you are on a more tight budget, don’t worry. There is a huge amount of food you can enjoy for cheap. From small restaurants, street food shops, and even supermarkets, you will not stop eating delicious dishes while you are in Japan. As a matter of fact, some of my favorite Japanese delicacies come from the supermarket! And when I want to have a quick meal, I hop into a cheap conveyor belt sushi restaurant. That is the thing about Japanese food I like. Even the cheap option is so tasty and made with great care.
