As visitors to Tokyo quickly discover, the people here are absolutely obsessed with food. The city has a vibrant and cosmopolitan dining scene and a strong culture of eating out – popular restaurants are packed most nights of the week. Best of all, you can get superlative meals on any budget.


Tokyo Dining Scene
Tokyo foodies take pride in what they like to think of as their ‘boutique’ dining scene. Rather than offer long menus of elaborate dishes, many of the best restaurants make just a few things – and sometimes even just one! Sushi shops make sushi; tempura shops make tempura. A restaurant that does too much might be suspect: how can it compare to a speciality shop that has been honing its craft for three generations?
Tokyoites’ twin passions for novelty and eating out means that the city is also a hotbed for experimentation. Trends come and go, but one that has stuck around – and spread roots – is the city’s homegrown farm-to-table movement. Increasingly, owner-chefs are working directly with rural producers to source ingredients, which might be used in orthodox-style Japanese cooking or creatively, to add a new twist to a classic dish or a fresh take on an imported one.

Izakaya ( 居酒屋 ) translates as ‘drinking house’ and an evening spent in one is dinner and drinks all in one: food is ordered a few dishes at a time along with rounds of alcoholic drinks. It’s fine to order a soft drink instead, but it would be strange to not order at least one drink. Some serve only the classics; others incorporate Western dishes or fusion ones. While the vibe is lively and social, it’s perfectly acceptable to go by yourself and sit at the counter.

Tokyo in a Bowl


Noodle Trends
Tokyo has a passion for ramen: the noodles are the subject of profuse blogs and a reason to stand in line for over an hour. By conservative estimates there are over 3000 ramen shops in the capital (some say 4000). One of Tokyo’s hottest dining trends is nouveau ramen, creativity distilled in a bowl of noodles and the best budget gourmet experience around. Grabbing late-night ramen after a rousing round of karaoke is a taste sensation you don’t want to miss.

Drinking & Nightlife

Make like Lady Gaga in a karaoke box, sip sake with a merry salaryman in a tiny postwar bar, or dance under the rays of the rising sun at an enormous bayside club: that’s nightlife, Tokyo style. The city’s drinking culture embraces everything from refined teahouses and indie coffee shops to craft-beer pubs and maid cafes.


Where to Drink
Roppongi has the lion’s share of foreigner-friendly bars, while Shinjuku offers the retro warren Golden Gai and the LGBT-friendly bar district Ni-chōme.
Other top party districts include youthful Shibuya and Harajuku; Shimbashi and Yūrakuchō, which teem with salarymen; and Ebisu and nearby Daikanyama, both of which have some excellent bars. Asakusa’s Hoppy-dōri is a fun, retro-style hang-out.

What to Drink
Japan’s national beverage is sake, aka nihonshū ( 酒 or 日本酒 ), and is made from rice. According to personal preference, sake can be served hot ( atsukan ) but premium ones are normally served well chilled ( reishu ) in a small jug ( tokkuri ) and poured into tiny cups known as o-choko or sakazuki .
The clear spirit shōchū ( 焼酎 ) is made from a variety of raw materials including potato and barley. Because of its potency (alcohol content of around 30%), it is usually served diluted with hot water ( oyu-wari ) or in a chūhai cocktail with soft drinks or tea. Sake and shōchū are common drinks to order at izakaya – along with nama (draft beer).
