The EJG Dining in Japan Guide
In our Dining in Japan guide, we will be providing you with reviews of some of our favorite Japan eating experiences. We say “eating experiences” because eating in Japan is not just limited to restaurants; some of Japan’s best food experiences can be found in such unlikely places as outdoor food stands and even the basement floor of department stores (depachika)!
Our Japan dining reviews also won’t just be limited to Japanese food. Japan is in fact a Mecca of high-quality cuisines from all over the world, so you can look forward to a truly satisfying international dining experience during your time in Japan even when you aren’t in the mood for sushi!
